Kim House

LPC-S, Registered Play Therapist

Individual Therapist In McKinney Tx

Hello, my name is Kim House.  I began my counseling career in 1998 after graduating with my Master’s Degree in Counseling, with a specialty in Play Therapy from the largest play therapy training program in the world, the University of North Texas. My career began at MHMRA of Houston, where I provided home-based therapy to children and families throughout the Houston area. In addition, I provided parenting training to parents as well as to various daycare organizations.  I later moved on to provide counseling in the school-setting to children attending Pre-K to 5th grade in a small town in Oklahoma.  My most recent job prior to working in private practice at CCA was at Genesis Women’s Shelter and Support in Dallas. I spent 11 years providing therapy to women and children/teens who had been exposed to domestic violence (physical, emotional/verbal, and sexual abuse).  I also facilitated parenting classes during this time in order to equip parents with the necessary tools to strengthen the parent-child relationship.  I feel that working in various environments (home setting, school, and office) throughout my career has benefited me greatly as a clinician.

My areas of expertise include play therapy, child/teen counseling, and parenting training. I feel comfortable working with an array of mental health issues including grief/loss, abuse, depression, anxiety, attachment issues, self-esteem,  domestic violence, trauma, ADD/ADHD, and parent-child relationship issues to name a few.  

I have a passion working with children and I have seen firsthand how the power of play can have such a positive impact on a child’s life.  Play therapy utilizes play, a child’s natural way of communicating in the world, to help them express their thoughts and feelings more easily through the use of toys rather than words.  

When I am not working, I enjoy reading, exercising, traveling, and spending time with my husband and son. I hope to have the opportunity to work with you at some point in the future.
