Irving Family Advocacy Center offers free counseling to those who live, work, or attend school in Irving.
It can be hard to deal with the things that happen in life. From being a victim of a crime to the falling apart of a relationship, or even feeling sad for reasons you can’t describe, it’s common to feel stuck.
Every person, family, and situation is unique. But no matter what you’re facing, we’re here to help.
We’ve listed below some of the reasons people visit us, but this list isn’t comprehensive. If you are struggling and don’t know how to overcome your problem, we can help!
If you’ve never been to a counselor or therapy, your first time can be intimidating. We understand!
Let’s show you what a typical appointment looks like so you can feel comfortable with what to expect.
After you submit your application, we’ll work together to pick which services you need, helping you make progress one step at a time.
The American Counseling Association defines counseling as “a professional relationship that empowers diverse individuals, families, and groups to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals.”
Due to the high appointment volume that we see, we cannot guarantee that someone will be available to meet with you immediately if you walk in. The best way to get in quickly is to call and speak to a staff member about your needs and we can set up a time to help serve you and your family.
We don’t want you to wait to get the help that you need. Please feel free to call and schedule an appointment so we are ready for you when you come into the Center.
Our services are completely free of charge.
