From Our Directors
The Nick Finnegan Counseling Center is dedicated to supporting the Houston community by providing high quality, affordable and accessible counseling services. Mental health care is even more critical during a time of disaster, so we have instituted changes to our in-person counseling sessions to ensure our clients continue to receive the high-quality mental health counseling they expect from NFCC. With the “Stay Home Work Safe” order issued for Harris County, NFCC has transitioned to providing all our counseling sessions online through a HIPAA protected telehealth option. Our goal continues to be to uphold our mission and make mental health counseling affordable and accessible during this time.
It is times like these that NFCC’s three payment options are so important for our community because we will never turn anyone away due to financial crisis. NFCC is unique in that we offer a private pay rate of $95, insurance, and a reduced-fee sliding scale. Our clients will always receive high quality care regardless of their method of payment. Our 12 counselors are excellent and sought out, and NFCC is thankful to employ them. We recognize that our counselors are vital to the future success of NFCC. We are incredibly thankful for the support of donors, foundations, clients and the community, and we will continue to serve as a resource for Houstonians.
In the coming weeks, we will be updating our website and social media with mental health resources intended to help our community cope with the various challenges brought about by COVID-19. We hope the information will be useful to you and your family, and we encourage you to share it with anyone you know who may find it beneficial. To learn more about our telehealth counseling options or to see other resources regarding mental health care during COVID-19, please check out our resource page and follow us on Instagram and Facebook @nickfinncousel.
It is our hope that you and those you care about stay safe and healthy during this time. Please call our main line at 713-402-5046 if we can help in anyway.

10th Annual Crawfish Boil CANCELLED
In light of the CDC’s recommendation regarding COVID-19 and limiting gatherings of people for the next few weeks, we will unfortunately be cancelling the 10th Annual Crawfish Boil this year. As much as this saddens us, our top priority is to put the health and safety of our supporters and community first. While our community navigates this pandemic, we are dedicated to providing mental health services when it is needed most. During a time of crisis, mental health services are even more critical, which is why at this time we will remain open and have created a new telehealth option for clients who are unable to attend a counseling session in person. Our goal is to continue to uphold our mission by supporting the mental health and well-being of our clients, while making counseling as accessible as possible. Click here for more.
