Ardis is a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor, Registered Play Therapist Supervisor and Certified Clinical Telemental Health Provider. She earned her Master of Science degree in Counseling from Southern Methodist University with specialty training in Play Therapy, Activity Therapy, Child Parent Relationship Training, Group Therapy, and Geriatrics. Ardis is currently working on obtaining Certification in Death and Grief Studies, as well as Certification as an End of Life Doula. Ardis has companioned people courageously seeking counseling for various life, family and mental health challenges from tiny tots to those with age spots. Ardis has worked with the adolescent populations in Frisco and Prosper ISD; grieving children and families with Journey of Hope, Camp Sol, and Camp Erin; end of life support with hospice; community support following hurricane Harvey, tornadoes in North Texas and suicide response support in the local community. Prior to counseling, Ardis dedicated eight years to Court Appointed Special Advocates of Collin County while staying home with her young children.

Ardis believes people are capable of change and growth when provided the opportunity of an accepting space to share their story and their perspective in order to gain insight and support through the challenges in their life. Ardis offers people of all ages a compassionate, warm presence while she walks alongside them on their path of seeking and discovery. Ardis’s energy and care for people is felt in her genuine presence offered.

Outside of counseling you will find Ardis playing outside in nature either with a dog or attempting to pet any dog she meets. Ardis and her husband of eighteen years have two adventurous and kindhearted teenagers, two gerbils and one geriatric dog, Louie (who has been promised to live his last years as the only dog of the home). Ardis and her family love to explore life through gifts of experience and traveling near and far.
