We understand life can be messy and out of balance. We are here to help!
Because we are a training facility, offering masters level and postdoctoral experiences, the entire team stays abreast of the latest and most effective empirically validated therapy techniques. To name a few, we offer counseling backed by training in:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: CBT is an evidence based therapy that many physicians request for their patients. It's effective for working with most issues and disorders, and all of our therapists are trained to integrate CBT in their work with you.
Parent Child Interaction Therapy: PCIT is an evidence based treatmtent for young children with behavior problems. Unlike other therapies, PCIT works with children and their parents together!
Dialectical Behavior Therapy: DBT helps adults and adolescents learn to manage and change inevitable painful emotions and reduce conflict in relationships.
Emotionally Focused Therapy: EFT is a tested and proven approach to couples therapy, grounded in attachment theory. It can also be used effectively to work with individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, and trauma.

It’s been my long-time dream to open a counseling center that serves everyone in the community with the very best treatment available. I’ve also always been earnest about, and thoroughly enjoyed the work I do training early-career therapists. At Houston Family Counseling, my two passions have merged. Young and intern therapists work alongside seasoned clinicians, and everyone, together, stays abreast of new therapy techniques, adheres to current ethical standards, and provides the blend of compassion and science-backed treatment we would want for our own family members. When you walk through our doors, you can rest assured that they are open because of our desire to help you through whatever trial you might be facing.
