Welcome to Inspire Therapy! My name is Caroline, and I am the founder and therapist here at Inspire. I attended Texas A&M and received my B.S. in Education with a concentration in Language Arts and Social Studies. Over the course of eight years, I worked in various teaching roles, including as a 3rd grade teacher, a 1st grade teacher, and a reading intervention teacher in Plano and Grand Prairie. During my tenure as a reading intervention teacher, I realized the critical importance of children’s mental health not only for their educational success but also for their overall well-being.

Motivated by this realization, I pursued my Master's in School Counseling and became a school counselor for Dallas ISD. In this role, I advocated for students by facilitating communication with parents, teachers, and administration. I also served as the 504 coordinator, advocating for student accommodations. I was deeply committed to the growth of students with learning disorders such as dyslexia and dysgraphia. Moreover, I supported students dealing with issues related to self-esteem, anxiety, ADHD, depression, autism, grief, PTSD, and social skills. As a school counselor, I had the opportunity to work closely with many parents, helping them to understand age-appropriate behaviors, development, and parenting skills.

For the past two years, I have been in private practice. I am trained in child-centered play therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), and I am trauma-informed. My therapeutic modalities include play therapy, sand tray therapy, person-centered therapy, motivational interviewing, and expressive arts—all tools I use to help my clients grow and heal. I understand the significance of having an advocate through all stages of life. I am skilled at working with teens and adults, providing them with a safe space to explore their emotional worlds and find relief from life’s various stressors.

I believe it is an honor to accompany others as they cultivate a relationship with themselves while navigating the complexities and joys of life.
