Marjorie is a counselor who specializes in play therapy, adolescent counseling, young adults, diversity issues, and child-parent relationship training. From a young age, Marjorie has had a passion for serving others in a meaningful way and has carried that sense of purpose with her throughout her life. Marjorie graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Psychology. Upon graduation Marjorie worked for a mentoring program for high-risk adolescents, providing support and growth opportunities even in the face of stressful environments and events. This position encouraged her to seek out different ways to attend to the socio-emotional needs of children and adolescents with more intentionality.
Marjorie then went on to receive her Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of North Texas. While in school she worked with a variety of client issues including trauma, depression, anxiety, and addiction. Marjorie also worked for the Center for Play Therapy while in school and gained extensive experience in child-centered play therapy as well as child-parent relationship training. Serving such a vast population confirmed for Marjorie that anyone can move towards healing as long as they are willing to take the first step. Marjorie believes that everyone deserves a space to focus on their own growth no matter what the issue may be. In the counseling room, she strives to provide unconditional support as they begin the journey together.
Marjorie is a Dallas native who loves her city (Go Mavs!). When she is not working, she enjoys finding new Netflix to binge, finding and baking dessert recipes from Pinterest, competing/winning in trivia, hiking, exploring Dallas’ many attractions and spending as much time as she can with her friends and family.
