We are so glad you are here! Olive House Counseling is a counseling practice in the heart of Roanoke, TX. The owners and founders, Heather Bedinger and Abby McCrary, had worked together for over 7 years in the non-profit setting and saw a need in the Roanoke area which led to the opening of Olive House Counseling. Client care, compassion, and high ethical standards are of utmost importance to them. Their wonderful team is able to provide quality play therapy, adolescent counseling, and individual adult therapy in an area that drastically lacks mental health services for an ever-increasing population.
The team at Olive House Counseling specialize in working with children ages 3 and up, adolescents, and adults dealing with trauma, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, codependency, defiance, opposition, ADHD, anger, grief, and more. They are trained in several therapies, including EMDR, play therapy, sand tray therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and more, giving them the ability to creatively seek solutions for care. They always want their office to be a safe, warm, and inviting space for clients to discuss life’s struggles that can be uncomfortable to address. Life can be messy and sometimes we don't know where to turn next. Our team believes in equipping clients with practical strategies to help them respond to whatever is holding them back, so they feel empowered to live their best healthy life.
The olive tree and olive branch have been symbols of peace, wisdom, and strength for thousands of years. An extremely slow-growing plant, the olive tree requires years of patient labor to reach full fruitfulness. As such, farmers would only grow them when there was ample time for growing, so olive trees became associated with peace time. The root system of the olive tree is so robust that it’s capable of regenerating itself even when the above-ground structure of the tree is destroyed by frost, fire, etc. This represents the labor that goes into cultivating growth. Additionally, a house is where someone should feel most comfortable and secure. It should be an environment where life decisions are made, attitudes and beliefs are formed, and awareness and relationships are fostered.
As such, the combination of Olive and House are representations of what we want to emulate. Olive House Counseling is committed to providing a welcoming space to walk with you through the work needed to live a confident life with healthy relationships.
