Corrie is a Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern and National Certified Counselor under the supervision of Toni Scalise M.Ed., LPC-S, RPT-S, NCC.
Corrie graduated in 2018 from the University of North Texas with her Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. During her clinical training at UNT, she interned at Children’s Health Medical Center of Dallas where she provided counseling services to individuals, families and groups with concerns such as medical complexities, coping difficulties, developmental delays, behavioral issues, anxious feelings and child-parent relationship issues.
Over the past decade, Corrie gained a diverse range of experience as she worked with individuals and families with varying medial, social, and educational needs. Through her time as a volunteer school aide, caregiver, and play therapy intern, Corrie became increasingly passionate about using creativity to help others. She is committed to meeting her clients where they are while adapting to their individual communication and mobility needs. Corrie is dedicated to adapting to all facets of her client’s culture such as socioeconomic status, ethnicity, gender, and cognitive ability.
She works with adults, families, children and teens to facilitate growth and insight while strengthening self-worth and communication skills. Corrie is committed to creating a safe and nonjudgmental environment centered around acceptance, empathy and genuineness. As an interpreter of play, Corrie works to strengthen family relationships and bridge the communication gap between caregivers and their children.
Corrie operates from a Person-Centered perspective. Person-Centered counseling theory supports the belief that everyone has an innate tendency to develop towards his or her full potential. This tendency can become blocked by different life experiences that impact one’s sense of worth and value. Person-Centered counseling is a highly individualized process; Corrie works to meet her clients where they are while actively supporting them throughout the therapeutic relationship.
Corrie joined Corbella Counseling in February of 2019. She offers flexible weeknight and weekend appointments.
