About Kelly Peyton, MA, LPC, CCTP:  Teen Counselor

“Everything is just so hard.” “My child is out of control.” “I’m so tired of feeling this way.” These types of statements often reflect the type of feelings Kelly’s clients have before seeking a teen counselor. Whether parenting a difficult child, struggling with addictions, or suffering from mood or thought disorders, Kelly has a compassionate healing approach tailored to identify problems and solutions through the teen counseling process. Kelly is a teen counselor providing services to clients both individually, and in groups such as the Teen Intervention Program (TIP).  She provides therapy in a supportive and caring environment focused on helping client’s to reach their goals and overcome life obstacles.

Kelly’s TIP group offers an option for treating teens in couseling that may need more intensive care than weekly sessions alone may offer, yet do not need intensive outpatient or inpatient treatments.  Examples include teens stepping down from intensive outpatient programs, recently discharged teens, teens needing additional sessions, or teens needing additional support as an adjuct to individual treatment.  Additionally, teens often respond to a group treatment format better than individual teen counseling making this a viable stand alone treatment.  This may be especially true for issues such as substance abuse, anger-management, and grief addressed weekly in the program. 

Kelly is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Registered Play Therapist, and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP).  Her experience includes, one year as a Graduate Practicum Counselor focused on child and adolescent counseling in Houston and Katy, several years as a peer counselor, and two years of volunteer crisis teen counseling at the Pregnancy Help Center in Katy, TX. Kelly specializes in child and adolescent counseling and continues training and certification in this area on an ongoing basis.
