Since 1979, we’ve been committed to one thing: Emotional Health.

Emotional health impacts virtually every aspect of our lives, and we’re dedicated to building, repairing and strengthening emotional health for people of all ages and income levels.

How do we do this?

Professional Counseling Services

Licensed professionals provide individual, family, or couples counseling. Fees fall on a sliding scale and depend on household income. Please call for services: 469-283-0242. (Do not email or leave a comment requesting services.)

Youth Programs

These services consist of individual and family counseling for young children, tweens and teens as well as educational groups. Please call for services: 469-283-0242.

Victims’ Assistance Program

The Counseling Place provides a wide range of services for victims of crime and other traumatic events. We provide professional therapy to victims who live or work in Richardson and surrounding areas. We provide in-depth advocacy for people who suffered from violent crime in the city of Richardson. Many of these services are free of charge. Our goal is to help victims recover emotionally and emerge from the crisis even stronger.

We provide these services by appointment only, so please call for assistance. We need to talk to you first to make sure we can provide you with the right kind of services at the level you need. Please do not leave a comment or email us for assistance. Call us at 469-283-0242.

We are not a walk-in clinic or a crisis center. If you are in crisis, click here for resources.

We work hard to keep our fees affordable. We know that when you need the help the most, it’s often when you’re not in the best place financially. Funding from special events, grants and contracts help us keep our services affordable. Our fees fall on a sliding scale, depending on household income.
