Read about Corrie here:


When Corrie was about to enter high school, she had her first experience with medical challenges when her little brother was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The journey was challenging because there were not many viable options for him at that time. After several months and a difficult surgery, he survived.

As a result, Corrie developed a desire to go into he medical field. She was on track to become a Physician’s Assistant. However, in her Junior year of high school, a friend of hers invited her to accompany her in a special-ed classroom where she played with students win her free time which greatly impacted her and changed her trajectory of studies. She developed a love for working with individuals with disabilities.

She became a camp counselor for kids with disabilities the summer after her senior year which enhanced her desire to work with them. She heard about art therapy and dance therapy in hospitals and this became her passion. While attending University of North Texas, she found a preschool for kids with varying disabilities called The Little Lighthouse in Denton, Tx. She volunteered there for 2 years twice a week when not in class. She worked with the kids and their parents.

She was asked to become a caregiver for a middle-school child diagnosed with RHETT syndrome and worked with the family until she graduated high school. The child was non-verbal yet Corrie found unique ways to communicate with her. She remains close with the family to this day. She cared for a few other children with varying disabilities such as Autism and intellectual disabilities while also working with their families as they navigated the challenges that arise when a child is disabled.

The work with these families while in graduate school led her to an internship at Children’s Medical Center now known as Children’s Health. She worked with many children and families who were non-verbal and each time found unique ways to communicate with them. She provided direct care to these children as well as sibling support for those whose siblings had a disability. She also provided play therapy to a child with Downs Syndrome and continues her work with him today at Corbella Counseling.

Corrie has a unique skillset. She is able to provide support & various types of therapy to children with disabilities, siblings, and parents. The families she works with continually report feeling understood and state that Corrie is an integral part of their care team. Corbella Counseling is grateful to have her working with these families.

Corrie has been married 6 years with 2 small children and a cat named, Rey. She enjoys being outdoors, crafting, and using creativity in all that she does. She works diligently to enhance physical, spiritual, and emotional health in her personal and professional life.
