Welcome to our counseling office. Deciding on the right counseling office and therapist is an important decision. We are service oriented and strive to offer a safe place in which to cope with crises, resolve problems, and deal with relationship or family matters. Our therapists are available during extended hours for convenience and maintain reasonable fees. We are committed to providing the service you need and helping you along the way.

We are located in the Stone Oak area and are easily accessible from 1604.

Appointments are scheduled for 45-60 minute sessions on the hour. Typically, we see clients between 9:00am and 7:00pm Monday through Thursday. However, there are some therapists that are available on Fridays and weekends. Payments are accepted by cash, check, or credit card.

We currently have seven licensed therapists (Licensed Professional Counselor or Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist) and several counseling interns. The therapists in our office are experienced in a range of areas to include marital and family counseling, individual counseling, adolescent counseling, substance abuse counseling, anger management, and many others. Please see the individual pages of each therapist to learn more about their specialties and counseling methods.

Fees for service with a licensed clinician range from $70.00 to $85.00 per session. Our therapists are providers for many insurance companies including but not limited to Aetna, Tricare, Humana, United Healthcare, Value Options, Compsych, and Texas True Choice. Please also refer to the individual pages of each therapist for a more comprehensive list of insurance panels.

All interns have earned a masters degree in counseling and are working towards an LPC or LMFT license with the state. Fees for the interns start at $50.00 per session and may be adjusted depending on arrangements made with the intern.

Call 210-497-2880 for an appointment with the therapist of your choice.

Please be advised that for some therapists, a credit card will be required at the time of booking to hold an appointment time.  Our office cancelation policy requires a 24-hour notice or a
$30 fee will be assessed for a last minute cancelation.  A $50 fee will be assessed for any appointment missed without notification.
