Alcohol Assessment
Adult Probation
Juvenile Probation

We want you to feel welcome and at home from the moment you walk in the door. We work hard to find you the right fit so you can comfortably address what brought you in, and leave feeling refreshed, renewed, and refocused.
Our therapists train in the most up-to-date research around to bring you cutting edge couples and individual therapy. We are skilled in many areas that will bring balance back to chaos, and reinforce longterm change.

If you’re tired of feeling at odds with one another and like you’re living with a stranger, our couples therapy will breathe new life back into your relationship. We use groundbreaking data and evidence-based research to shake up old habits and give you a roadmap for a long-lasting, passionate relationship.

Counseling is for folks who are courageously facing their fears, who want more from life, who want to expand and achieve personal goals. If you are struggling with dissatisfaction and desire more, you can learn to work through obstacles such as anxiety, depression and anger. Counseling is a means to address your pain, grieve your losses, and add meaning to your life.

Our unique Couples Retreat focuses on sharing and practicing communication skills and building conflict management techniques for a recipe of relationship connection. We cover everything from romance, passion, intimacy, conflict, life goals and building a foundation for your marriage to last a lifetime.

We have connected with Denton County Parole and Probation to provide the Drug and Alcohol Evaluation as well as the Psychological Evaluation. The cost is established by Denton County and will be the same for all agencies, so call us today. We offer a speedy turnaround to get the report to your probation officer within 2-3 business days.

Who We Are

Stacy Griffin, LPC-S, Director

Stacy is currently out of the office for a Summer 2018 sabbatical. Though she is not available for regular appointments this summer, feel free to contact the office for upcoming retreat dates and how to schedule with Stacy upon her return. You may find she often has a waiting list, her passion for helping couples repair and reconnect is unrivaled. It’s worth the wait!

She brings an energy into couples work that ignites change for the long term. Forget about learning how to argue better, analyzing your early childhood, making grand romantic gestures, or experimenting with new sexual positions. Stacy instead helps you to recognize and admit that you are emotionally attached to and need your partner for nurturing, soothing, and protection. This is no flaw or deficit; it’s love.

Stacy is always seeking new adventures and thrill, which is why in her spare time she is either traveling to remote locations across the globe or renovating a 1971 Airstream with a dream to scoot around the country full-time. Both travel and the Airstream are perfect reminders that anything worth having is not always easy.

Dr. Brandon Beckman, DO, Psychiatrist

Dr. Beckman enjoys working with adults, children and adolescents. He has experience in both clinic and hospital settings. His expertise lies in helping people manage symptoms of depression, anxiety, abuse, PTSD, bipolar and anger. While not all situations call for medication, he is a firm believer it can be a useful tool in various situations. He always adds "But like all tools, some one has to be willing to pick it up to use it. And the tool doesn't do the work, the person using the tool has to do the work". Dr Beckman has always felt therapy and medication together can be more effective than either alone.

Dr. Beckman has been in Denton since the 5th grade. He went both Denton 'West' and Billy Ryan campuses. He graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor's Degree in Biology, Chemistry and Spanish. He went to medical school at the University of North Texas Health Science Center Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth. From there he traveled down I-45 to the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston for his General Psychiatry Residency. Traveling further south he completed his Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. Having run out of I-45, Dr. Beckman returned to Denton.

Laura Westbrook, LPC-Intern, MASupervised by Christy Graham, MA, LPC-S, RPT-S
