What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

General Counseling and Play Therapy Services

The General Counseling Program serves individuals, couples, and families and provides one-on-one therapy services to several hundred clients each year to provide emotional growth, healing, and emotional stability. General Counseling helps victims of all ages who are struggling to recover from domestic violence, child abuse, and other victimization. Many clients show remarkable improvement in their level of functioning after only a few visits. Clients who have suffered severe abuse may require ongoing treatment.

We are one of only a few agencies in North Texas to provide low or no cost Play Therapy services to children from low income households. Through Play Therapy, the healing process can begin as early as age 3.
