Savilla Davis

Therapy should be a partnership and the job of a counselor is first to seek to understand the client’s perspectives and needs. As humans, we not only value but need true connection to foster healing and growth. To help others be seen and understood is my greatest privilege. I believe some of the most profound changes within a person often come from the quiet moments of reflection and from presence of another human connection. 

Through my experience working with underprivileged youth and families in Dallas and Plano, I've experienced the impact of trauma and obstacles that impede personal growth.
