Meet Chastity, a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate and National Certified Counselor under the supervision of Dr. Brandy Schumann, PhD. Chastity earned her Master of Science in Counseling from Southern Methodist University. She sees all ages and stages of life and specializes in children, adolescents, and young/middle-aged adults.

Her experience at the SMU Center for Family Counseling and Children’s Advocacy Center in Collin County exposed her to a diverse range of clients, including children, adolescents, parents, groups, and adults facing various concerns like childhood trauma, anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive tendencies, attachment issues, emotional regulation, autism spectrum disorder, and ADHD. Currently working towards becoming a Registered Play Therapist, she strongly advocates for early intervention as the best way to prevent long-term mental health difficulties.

With a touch of humor, Chastity infuses her counseling sessions with laughter to humanize clients while navigating life’s challenges.

She utilizes creative therapeutic strategies to facilitate healing and restoration of the inner child, helping clients connect with their emotions and promote well-being. She strives to provide a safe environment for her clients, encouraging them to tap into their own inner wisdom.

Prior to her counseling career, Chastity had a background as a collegiate soccer athlete and assistant coach, fueling her passion for assisting high school and college athletes. Recognizing the importance of mental strength alongside physical strength, she facilitates a space for elite athletes to explore and understand the needs of their minds and bodies.
