A counseling service has moved to Highland Village from Lewisville and rebranded in the process.

Liberty Quest Counseling relocated to Highland Village in August. The service was founded by Kristy White Moore in 2017, and its first office was located in Frisco, counselor Caroline Walton said. The service moved to Lewisville in 2019.

Moore died in January 2022 because of complications from COVID-19. Walton and two other therapists had been working for Moore, and Walton became the owner of Liberty Quest Counseling in May 2022. The other two therapists remain in the practice.

"Our goal was to continue Kristy’s vision of helping others on their journeys to find freedom and hope," Walton said in an email.

Liberty Quest Counseling offers mental health counseling services for individuals age 8 and older as well as couples and families. Besides Walton, Julie Pagenkopf and Cari DeBey are counselors at Liberty Quest, and they are all licensed professional counselors. Liberty Quest offers in-person and telehealth sessions. Liberty Quest also welcomes private-pay clients.

The therapists on staff have backgrounds working in school, in-patient and nonprofit settings, and their mission is to "engage clients to start a healing journey, equipping and empowering them with the tools to discover freedom and hope," Walton said.

She added that the business has "rebranded," and counselors are looking for opportunities to engage with the community. She said that in moving into the new office space, she saw an opportunity to revitalize the practice.

"We hired a branding team to help us determine our practice's mission and vision, rebuild our website, and create a new logo," she said in an email. "Using the pieces Kristy had created, we rewrote our mission statement for the company. We really wanted to help us (the therapists) and our clients understand what our goal is in counseling, which is to engage clients to start a healing journey, equipping and empowering them with tools to discover freedom and hope."
