Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Kelly Ayala "As a child I would watch my grandmother make friends wherever we went. The family joke was that she knew no strangers. I like to think that I have been given her gift of connection and been training to be a neuropsychotherapist since those early memories. My relationship with therapy is both an art and science. My approach is a brain based one that incorporates healing and practical understanding. I specialize working with high functioning teens, young adults, adults and families. I use a variety of interventions and tailor our time together to best suit your needs. I am honored and excited to be serving the North Texas area and working with our diverse community."

I would highly reccomend Kelly to anyone who has a stigma towards counseling. Kelly has significantly helped me in understanding my mental health and is constanly offering solutions to face a variety of struggles, rather than finding alternatives. She has only encouraged me to be the best version...more

Kelly is amazing! She's so down to earth and relatable. I've resisted counseling for years but after one session with Kelly, I was more than willing to continue.

Ms. Kelly Ayala has helped our child learn how to significantly reduced her symptoms associated with severe anxiety. Kelly is very professional, knowledgeable and caring. I have been very impressed with her understanding and commitment to my child every visit.

Mrs. Ayala by far exceeded my expectations. I have looked for years for a LPC whom I could totally confide in without a feeling of being judged. She's easy to talk with and a good listener. She made me feel like a normal human being again. I highly recommend her and I will forever be a client.

She is the most compassionate counselor I've ever had. I have recommended her to my friend for stress and anxiety. She is great, fun, and relatable. It feels as though I'm talking to a friend instead of someone who's judging me (parent, etc.). I am excited and enthused to heal when I walk through...more
