The Montfort Group

Best Plano Counselor


We see strength
in scars

Our group was born out of a need for a fresh, refined approach to therapy. Your story is complex and winding, and your path to improved mental health should be as unique as you are. The Montfort Group aims to provide a serene, calming setting where you can feel challenged, supported, and motivated. Our five skilled therapists bridge specialized backgrounds and varied philosophies together to create one unified strategy. Rather than steer you away from your own natural abilities, we help you maximize your unique strengths to uncover the boldest version of yourself. We do not view a broken history as the end of a story. We see it as an opportunity for a new beginning.

Strategies To Self Regulate

Most of us have the capacity to tolerate the ebb and flow of emotions and have strategies to self-regulate.
