Alyssa Evans brings a wealth of experience to the Flower Mound counseling center, with a specialization in therapeutic art. She applies a variety of therapeutic techniques and art processes to best fit the needs of her clients. She has worked with a wide range of clients, including those struggling with addiction, grief, self-harm, behavioral issues, anxiety, self-esteem and new family dynamics.
The Self-Esteem Intensive will focus on team-building, self-worth, confidence-building, body image and more, and is meant for students between the ages of 12 and 16. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Aug. 3 at the NextGen office, 4325 Windsor Centre Trail, Suite 200, in Flower Mound.
The Aug. 3 Intensive is a launching point for monthly group counseling for two hours on Saturdays throughout the school year with a continued emphasis on self-esteem.
