We’re an established non-profit agency providing affordable professional counseling and education services.

You only get one brain. We’ll help you take care of it.

We won! Thank you Wildflower Patio and Grill!

From August 28 to September 13, the restaurant put aside 50 cents per lunch plate and $1 per dinner entrée and on September 14, they donated all they’d collected to ONE charity in Richardson. AND because emotional health impacts virtually every aspect of our lives, we believed our cause was perhaps the most important one there was. Evidently, a lot of others agreed!  Thank you Wildflower Patio and Grill for your creative support of North Texas Giving Day!

What We Do:

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

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.

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.

Above & Beyond Magazine

Thank you, FROST, for sponsoring our 1st Edition of Above & Beyond!

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.
