Andrea Heston M.S., LMFT, RPT


I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Registered Play Therapist in McKinney, TX'. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, families, and children where I use a family systems approach to therapy. I believe that individuals are impacted both positively and negatively by the relationships and systems surrounding them. My mission is to help clients see the good in themselves, feel confident in their abilities, to discover their passions, and accomplish their goals. 


As a Registered Play Therapist I have additional training in working with children where I utilize Child Centered Play therapy, Activity Therapy, and Child-Parent Relationship Training. I am also a certified Happiest Baby on the Block Educator, working with new and expectant parents to work through the elusive Fourth Trimester. I am passionate about helping parents find the joy in parenting by providing brain based and attachment oriented parenting guidance. As a momma of an 8 year old and 3.5 year old, I know how beneficial it can be to have someone to support you in your parenting journey.

I am also a Prepare-Enrich Facilitator and am looking forward to using the program with engaged couples, couples who are talking about marriage, and currently married couples.
