Before your appointment
Because the counseling process can be unfamiliar and even intimidating, let us help you take those first steps together. From your first call to your last appointment, everything about your relationship with us is confidential.
To decide if counseling is right for you, call us at 713-402-5046. Our friendly team can answer your questions to help you determine if you would like to schedule an appointment. Payment options can be discussed at this time too. An intake appointment allows you to meet with one of our licensed therapists, to discuss what is going on in your life and to determine together if our counseling services are a good fit for you. If you and the therapist determine a different counselor or service would help you more, we can provide you with a referral.
