Therapeutic Counseling in Houston, TX
Compassionate, insightful, & effective help when you need it.
Even in the best of times, personal problems and trauma can create feelings of fear, anger, sadness, anxiety, or hopelessness. For those suffering from alcoholism, drug addiction, or other mental health issues, these feelings can become overwhelming. In many cases, talking to family or friends just isn’t enough. And often, people struggling with serious personal issues avoid sharing it with loved ones because of fear of being judged or misunderstood.
That’s why regular therapeutic counseling (also referred to as "therapy") can be vital to recovery. Perhaps you’re dealing with an addiction or mental health disorder. Or, you're in recovery and struggling with it. Or, you’re just facing difficult personal issues and don't know where to turn. In these situations, it is important to have someone to talk to who understands what you're going through. Someone who is unbiased and trained to help. Someone who is a therapist at the Center for Recovering Families.
How does it work?
The Center for Recovering Families has a staff of compassionate, insightful, and highly trained therapists. To determine the most effective counseling or treatment, and/or which therapist is best suited to your individual needs, you will receive a thorough clinical assessment at your first visit. Fortunately, this assessment is covered by most insurance plans. You can come alone or have your family accompany you. Based on that assessment, we will recommend the best course of treatment, which may include individual, family, or group counseling by our therapists.
Therapeutic counseling is provided at The Council’s Center for Recovering Families in a relaxed, safe, and secure environment. Your therapist will help you explore past issues and current feelings, and identify potential stumbling blocks to recovery. Their counseling can help you make positive behavior changes aimed at long-term recovery, increased self-awareness and self-esteem, and stronger relationships with family, friends, and coworkers.
The Center for Recovering Families also provides therapeutic counseling and support for children and adolescents, whether or not there is a family history of substance abuse. We are the leader in helping children who are affected by parents, siblings, extended family members, and caretakers struggling with alcoholism, drug abuse, or other compulsive behaviors. Our clinical staff is also qualified to help adolescents who are experimenting with or abusing substances, or are struggling with any other compulsive behaviors or co-occurring mental health disorders.
