Christy is a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate and National Certified Counselor under the supervision of Toni Scalise M.Ed., LPC-S, RPT-S, NCC.

Christy is passionate about working with children, adolescents, and parents to cultivate a safe, compassionate space to foster growth. She believes in a developmental approach to counseling to meet clients where they are in order to build up self-awareness and acceptance together.
Christy trusts in the potential and capacity for growth in everyone she interacts with.

Christy completed her undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Child Development at Texas Christian University. Through her experiences with the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development, she was able to build on her desire to enter the helping profession. Christy studied the Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) approach to connecting and empowering families and had the opportunity to volunteer with the Hope Connections camps to put that model into practice. She is working toward her certification as a TBRI practitioner which she should have in the Spring of 2023.

Christy attained her Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health at Southern Methodist University where she learned from specialized play therapy, activity therapy, family, and crisis/trauma counseling courses. Christy completed her internship experience at Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center where she implemented Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) to work with children, adolescents, and families who had experienced trauma and abuse. Christy is passionate about continuing to serve children and adolescents who have faced adverse life experiences and walk alongside them towards healing.

Christy joined Corbella Counseling in August of 2022. She offers flexible daytime, weeknight and weekend appointments.
