Austin Counseling House - Therapy in Austin, TX

In-person and Online

For those that can, in-person counseling tends to have better outcomes and we love it when our clients are able to come see us in-person for sessions. Many of our clients do a hybrid of some in-person appointments and some virtual and find this to be convenient and effective. For those who can’t easily get to our office space, or just prefer the ease of Telehealth, we do offer online sessions for clients located in Texas.
