About this pro

I graduated from Texas Tech over 25 years ago and obtained degrees in Child and Adolescent Development, Family Studies, and became a Child Development Specialist. I have worked with individuals of all ages, from newborns to the elderly. I have also obtained the Certified Restorative Therapist, Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor, Certified Anger Control Counselor, Mediation Certification, and Life Coach Certifications.

My educational ideas were built on a direct and firm developmental approach. Understanding the developmental process of every human being is vitally important. Therefore, I explore life events with each individual or their parents, and this gives me a clear understanding of their growth, development, learning, adaptation, and coping skills during different life stages. I use art, sand, and play therapy as a way of exploring thoughts and feelings leading us to behaviors. 

I have a direct approach to life as well as counseling. I feel that the individuals I see respect truth and desire to hear the truth so they can move forward. My patients describe me as having an “out-of-the-box” approach with kids as well as adults. My office is purposefully designed to not be the typical clinical setting. Having no desire for a standard office setting, I created instead an atmosphere of uniqueness, comfort, safety, and warmth. I feel that each person I see has their own personalized jigsaw puzzle they bring to me, eager to put the many pieces in place. Together, we begin a discovery process by examining the pieces of their puzzle, leading them to understanding. 

I offer home visits when needed. Many times it is necessary for me to observe family units to understand how the family dynamics work or how a child acts in their home setting. This may mean recognizing a behavioral issue, witnessing a child not staying in their bed, or gaining insight into routines and family dynamics. 

My team consists of Dexter, a golden retriever therapy dog, Woody, a 50-pound tortoise, and our new addition...three baby chicks! 

Whatever is agreed upon, whether it is me meeting with school teachers or administrators, making a home visit, speaking with key people in someone’s life, contacting an absent parent, talking with a child’s incarcerated parent, or contacting an estranged family member, I will do so…. When the outcome benefits someone’s life. Guess that is part of my “out-of-the-box” attitude about life. 

Bring in your personalized jigsaw puzzle and we will begin the process.

Whether I am working with frantic parents of a newborn, a toddler who has elected himself boss of the home, a child who has continues to disobey at school, an adolescent believing his parents are stupid, a broken-hearted college girl, a couple dealing with infidelity, or a family who has experienced the death of a child, I make a practice to meet my patients where they are emotionally.

I want each person I work with to know they do have a voice, and by becoming accountable, they can change their lives for the better.

    No pressure atmosphere. Becky looks you straight in the eye and tells you the truth and not what you want to hear. Very direct, to the point and right on mark with the problem and what needs to be done to solve it.

  • Amy P.

    Hiring Becky has been wonderful. She is very compassionate but firm. She gives you sound advice and some different views that I had not thought of. I love her other pet partners - Dexter the Dog, Woody the Tortoise and the chickens. All great for conversation starters and analogies. I will definitely recommend her to others.

  • Molly P.

    Very honest, diplomatic and concise- gets to the root of the issue quickly.

  • Amy P.

    Becky is very easy to talk to and offers some great advice and homework to do. Her experience and her genuine caring to help others is very refreshing. I love her partners Dexter, Woody and chickens. Great conversation pieces and analogy of lives.
