Dr. Valencia Campbell-Chapin
Are you tired of those frustrating phone calls from the school saying that your child got into another fight? Or has been suspended again? Are you tired of looking at your child’s behavior sheet and seeing multiple numbers circled? If you are tired of your child’s color being changed to red or number being change, I understand your frustration. Having 20 years of experience working in the public schools as a Certified School Counselor and Special Ed Teacher, I can help.
I can give your child the tools they need to stay on green. I can help your child learn how to get along with others, control their anger, and think things through before reacting. My goal is to improve lives, while creating a healthy climate for positive change.
You can reach me at 817-210-5674. I have early morning appointments, daily lunch times, afternoon appointments, evening appointments, and SUNDAY sessions available. All clients are welcome. Looking forward to talking with you soon.
I have been practicing in the helping profession for 20 years and have Master’s Degrees in General Psychology from the University of Louisiana – Monroe and Counseling Psychology from Tarleton State University. I hold licensures as a Professional Counselor and a Specialist in School Psychology in the state of Texas and have been working with children and adolescents for approximately 19 years. I began working within the public school system before moving to the correctional and detention settings. I have worked as an evaluator and counselor, helping families as well as children, adolescents, and teens. I also have experience working with adults and families, as well as couples and marriages in individual and group settings.
I have experience working with ADHD, Anxiety, Aggression/Violence, Anger, Emotional Problems, Depression, Family Problems, Grief, Impulsivity, Marriage/Couples, Relationships, and Suicidal Ideations among other issues or concerns.
I have been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for over 16 years. I am currently licensed in both California and Texas. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Speech Communication from California State University Los Angeles and my Master of Arts Degree in Clinical Psychology: Marital & Family Therapy from Azusa Pacific University. I have extensive experience with Individuals, Couples, Families, Children and Groups in a variety of settings including military, non-profit community, and faith based. I have worked with individuals experiencing grief, loss, depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. I have worked with couples experiencing marital distress, infidelity, and domestic violence. I have worked with groups of individuals caught in the cycle of domestic violence. I believe that people are social beings, and our closest relationships are the hardest to successfully maintain and thrive in. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has put additional stress on even the most solid relationships. In therapy, we can work on strategies that build on the strengths you already have and promote resilience in difficult circumstances; and we can develop or enhance skills such as conflict resolution, forgiveness, problem solving, crisis management, grief, healthy boundaries, and anger management. Together, we can define your goals; your future as an individual, a couple or a family is not dictated or defined by your past or your current circumstances.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor CI. I have Master’s Degrees in Special Education, School Counseling, and Professional Counseling from Lamar University. My 20 years of experience as a school educator and school counselor has afforded me the opportunity to work with children experiencing emotional outbursts, school behavior issues, autism disorder, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, identity issues (LGBTQ community), self esteem, academic concerns, and parenting.
I am trained in techniques of Play Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, CBT, and Person Centered Therapy.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate, I am supervised by Deborah Gardner, LPC-S, NCC.
It is normal to have difficulties in life and need a little help. At times we all may feel overwhelmed, have racing thoughts, or just struggle to find our way. Let’s take this journey together as you are EMPOWERED to define your preferred happiness. I’m here to support you every step of the way.
I am a Marriage and Family Therapy Associate. I earned my Bachelor’s in Psychology from Colorado State University and my Master’s from Capella University specializing in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have experience in crisis management in both inpatient and outpatient settings as well as helping families cope with domestic violence. I use a strengths-based systemic approach to therapy helping individuals, couples and families explore moments when the problem is less or not even around, what made that possible, and how you might be able to achieve that in the current moment. Problems aren’t born in a vacuum so I look to see who else in one’s life might have significance in reducing the issues you face.
