Family Counseling Services

Serving Individuals, Couples, and Families in Lubbock

ALL of you are important to us. There is usually high demand for our Master’s Level Interns.  Sometimes, we are in between semesters, and Master’s Level Interns are not able to accept new clients until the next semester begins, so it MAY take a little time to be scheduled with a Master’s Level Intern.  Know that we keep your information and as soon as one becomes available, you will be called to schedule. If you would like to be seen sooner, LPC’s and LPC Interns have greater availability. Feel free to email any time with questions.  Thank you for your patience!

If you are in crisis, please call the Crisis Line at 806-740-1414 or 911 for immediate help.
