Individual counselors (listed by category under Resources/Counselors):
The counselors in our community have individual protocols for how they are seeing clients at this time. A majority are doing telehealth, which means seeing clients through video calls vs in-person appointments. Many are accepting new clients and also have lower rates available for this unusual time. We have an internal list of options available and can personally help you navigate. Contact us through our website or phone (346-703-0051) Monday – Friday 9 am – 4 pm for assistance. 

Coping with Covid – FREE Counseling resource for Texas residents offered by Baylor College of Medicine and Harris Health System. Parents learn cognitive behavioral techniques (CBT) to teach their children who have faced fear, anxiety and uncertainty during Covid.  Therapists lead parents in six 60-minute sessions at no cost.

Psychiatric Hospitals and Treatment Centers:
The treatment facilities / hospitals on our Resource pages are still accepting patients.  What may be different is their visitation policy, varying by facility.  We can help you gather the information that you need for your situation. 

Partial Hospitalization and Outpatient Programs:
Many are still meeting in person at this time. Some have moved to meeting as a group over telehealth platforms. They continue to monitor available information, making changes as necessary. Regardless, these programs will still exist if that is something you are needing at this time.
