Hi, My name is Mariah J. Tailleur a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas. I have been a practicing therapist for 20+ years. I LOVE what I do! I am defiantly corky and have an out of the box personality. I consider myself the 'Organic Therapist' This does not mean I do not occasionally stop for a burger from McDonalds because I do!! This means I prefer to work with families in a non intrusive manner. Therapy first...medication next...and the combo for optimal results. Feel free to contact me for further information! Cheers, Mariah
I feel lucky to have a job I love so much. Though I studied fashion design during my undergraduate education, I have always been able to utilize creativity and love for kids. After working as a childrenswear designer in New York, I moved to Colorado where I pursued my master’s degree in counseling and trained in play therapy at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. I am a military spouse, so I have been fortunate to live in places all across the US and find ways to serve children and families in many different roles. Currently, I am in the last year of my doctorate in counseling at the University of North Texas. As a professional counselor, I have worked with children and individuals who have experienced adversity due to community and domestic violence, substance use, loss and separation, and chronic mental health concerns. Regardless of what people are experiencing, my hope is to help children, individuals, and families use their strengths to navigate their challenges and grow in the ways they find meaningful.
I live in Keller with my husband, and sweet dog and cat, Henry and Pam. In my spare time, I love to spend time outside, travel, and enjoy time with my friends and family. It’s important to me to stay active and work towards wellness in every part of my life.
I am looking forward to supporting you and your family!
During my senior year at Texas Tech University, I found a love for children with autism and related behavioral disorders when volunteering in a special education classroom. The moment I met this group of spirited children, I knew I had found my calling. After graduating in 2000 with a triple degree in Psychology, Biology and Exercise & Sports Sciences, I returned to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and continued working with special needs children as a Registered Behavior Therapist and parent trainer in various settings, including in-home, public schools, private schools and most recently at the Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities in Dallas, Texas. I just passed my Texas State Exam for Professional Counselors and am a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern LPC-Intern #82517 in the State of Texas supervised by Mariah J. Tailleur, LPC-Supervisor #66631.
With 20 years of experience as a behavior therapist, I understand the importance of the parent’s role in the treatment of their child. I have witnessed firsthand parents becoming empowered when they learned how to play, interact and communicate with their children. With this new sense of clarity, parents experience a decrease in stress which naturally leads to an increase in healthy interactions and strengthened bond between parent and child.
Having a child with behavioral issues and developmental delays can put stress and create an imbalance on an entire family unit. Parental self-care is key for the treatment of children because parents are essentially directing and making decisions that continuously affects their child’s development. I feel a healthy body and clear mind are essential ingredients for an all-around balanced life. I have found for myself that daily mindful meditation and Pilates works best to keep my mind and body in a state of homeostasis, and will support my clients in finding what suits them best.
My goal at Keller Child and Family is make life better for the entire family unit by focusing on the well-being of each member. Supports to create balance often include, parent training, home visits, coordinating resources, consulting/coordinating treatment with other providers, siblings workshops, assessment, programming and individual behavior therapy. My passion is helping others and I hope to have the opportunity to assist you in creating a better life for your family!
Hi, my name is Grace and I went to Texas A&M University (whoop!) for my undergraduate degree where I majored in psychology. I loved being a part of such a large and diverse community during my time at College Station. I decided to pursue my Masters in Counseling at the University of North Texas and during my time there, I focused on Play Therapy. After graduating UNT I took my State Exam with the Texas Professional State Board Examiners and passed my first try! Now I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern LPC-Intern #82667 Supervised by Mariah J. Tailleur Supervisor LPC-S #66631 who has been practicing as a Therapist for over 20 years.
I work with children, adolescents, parents, adults, and families. The counseling relationship is about providing a safe space in order to express self. It is important to me that the relationship I develop in the therapy room becomes the foundation for clients to lead a well adjusted and happy life.
In my experience children/adolescents can often feel misunderstood because developmentally they are still working on interpersonal self and communication. My education and experiences have taught me that children communicate through play and adolescents communicate through games & talking. As you’re therapist I will focus on emotional development, self-confidence and self-regulation.
I have experience working with children and adolescents that have experienced trauma, domestic violence, separation from family members, adoption, anxiety, and depression. I feel honored to be a part of their journey towards healing because it takes so much courage to begin the counseling process.
I live in Fort Worth with my husband and our three dogs, Bella, Brooke, and Mabel! Those pups keep us on our toes and we love spending time with them. Our favorite things to do are taking walks with them and teaching them new tricks! You will often see me with a cup of coffee in hand! I can’t wait to meet you and begin our counseling journey together!
A bit about me!
I received my Master’s in Counseling from The University of North Texas specializing in play therapy and now work at Keller Child and Family Therapy completing my internship hours as an LPC-Intern supervised by Mariah J. Tailleur, LPC-Supervisor.
While at UNT, I worked with children struggling with attachment concerns, aggression, anxiety, and behavioral concerns. Additionally, I have experience working with people across the lifespan struggling with depression, anxiety, and addiction.
I also have training in Child-Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT); I work to incorporate applicable skills and lessons during parent consults to help strengthen parents’ understanding and connection with their children.
When I am not working with clients, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two dogs Leia and Dany. They are poodle mixes that look more like mythological creatures than dogs. I enjoy traveling and experiencing new cultures, foods, and views! I also love to garden and collect house plants. Getting my hands dirty and watching things grow has become a part of my own wellness routine. I try to do yoga every day, it helps me fight against my own anxiety. It has also helped me increase my mindfulness and inner peace.
I look forward to getting to know you!
About Keller Child And Family Therapy
Becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) has been such a wonderful & rewarding journey. I started working with children and families in Ottawa, Canada almost 15 years ago. After graduating from the University of North Texas, I moved to Ottawa, Canada where I worked with children and families in group homes, schools and large agencies. Due to the passion I developed in my work with children and families I went back to school to pursue a Masterʼs Degree in Counseling. Upon graduation I was fortunate to work with various families, children and adolescents including fire-setters, children who witnessed domestic violence, teenage moms and individuals who experienced trauma. A few years ago I returned to North Texas and continued to work with children, individuals, families and the legal system in this community.
I am extremely passionate about providing counseling to my community and bring with me an extensive background in counseling. I live in the Fort Worth area with my loving dog, Justice. We love to garden, take walks and learn more about our community. I practice Yoga to stay grounded and healthy not only for myself but also for my clients. I like the arts and often enjoy going to Bass Hall for performances.
I look forward to meeting you and/or your family to support your journey towards positive change and healthy relationships.

Mariah has done amazing things for my family. While she is primarily the children's therapist she takes the time regularly to check in on me and my own therapy journey with my own therapist as well as taking the time to work with us on our family healing and teaching us to be a closer and tighter knit unit. She is amazing.
