Chapter House Counseling Center was established in late 2014 as a result of a huge need in the Dallas metroplex for an advanced outpatient provider. Our team consists of an MD Psychiatrist, a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor, two masters level therapists and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, and numerous 12 step volunteers. Chapter House Counseling Center holds a license from the Texas Department of State Health Services. In addition, Chapter House Counseling Center CARF accredited and is a Licensed Clinical Training Institute with the Texas Department of State Health Services.
The Partial Hospitalization Program consists of 20 hours of clinical services each week, while the Intensive Outpatient Program consists of 10 hours each week of clinical services. During an individual’s outpatient treatment, we will provide family therapy and family programming at various intervals during treatment. Please contact us to find out current group days and times. A typical Partial Hospitalization Program will last 2-3 weeks and the Intensive Outpatient Treatment will be 12 weeks in length, but this can be more or less depending on progress. After the intensity of PHP and/or IOP is complete, each client will step down to supportive outpatient services which includes continued individual therapy and 3 hours of group each week.
We also provide clinical services to individuals, families and couples. Areas of clinical expertise include, but are not limited to, chronic relapse, substance abuse, codependency, eating disorders, life and coping skills, marriage restoration, adoption, grief and loss, trauma and abuse.

Assistant Clinical Director
Hi! I entered Chapter House Counseling Center as graduate student intern in the winter of 2016. By the spring of 2017, I was sold on Chapter House and its commitment not only to clients but their families as well. When I saw the way Chapter House includes families and loved ones in treatment planning and updates, I knew this was the place for me. As a License Professional Counselor and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor with a double master’s degree in Professional Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy, I love the way we consider the whole family dynamic and not only the client and their behaviors. Addiction is a family illness and we treat it as so. As the Intensive Outpatient Patient (IOP) curriculum author and coordinator, I have worked to create a program that encompasses life skills in conjunction with the emotional development and coping skills needed to live a productive, effective, and happy life. My focus is on treating the whole client. I believe we are all innately, searching to fill a God-shaped hole. My hope for the guys of Chapter House is one that includes working to find a higher power, allowing it to restore relationships, and forging new paths in life. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR has empirically shown to be extremely effective in treating trauma. Through EMDR and the lens of the enneagram, I work to help our clients heal hurts at the source instead of treating the symptoms. My therapeutic approach is heavily influenced by enneagram knowledge. The enneagram is based on the premise that we cannot change how we see the world, but we can change how we respond to it. Through helping clients realize their motivations and predictable patterns of behavior, we can work together in channeling all that energy for transformation.
I grew up in East Texas and have been in Dallas since 2010. I met my husband, Ken Kobylinski, while working at Chapter House and we were married in 2018. I enjoy being with my family, hanging out with our dogs Morty Pfefferman and Stubbs, cooking, enneagram work, and Mexican food.
