Raised for Nonprofits


To provide affordable professional counseling and education services that strengthen our community.
The Counseling Place (The CP) has entered challenging times. After 36 years in the same cozy location owned by the City of Richardson, we have moved into our own (bigger) facility. While it's a wonderful change for our staff and clients, the sudden increase in our overhead expenses surpasses $100,000 per year. The CP is in need of financial support to continue our current programs; because of this exciting move, we can serve a larger population. Since our relocation, we've welcomed clients from Garland, Plano, North Dallas, Sachse and our other neighboring cities. We need help to keep going at this pace. It goes without saying that we feel strongly about emotional health, and the sooner people learn healthy stress management skills, the better. Many people don't realize how the youngest of children can acquire a few invaluable techniques to help them deal with disappointment, delayed gratification, setting boundaries, adjusting to life changes and other challenges. The Counseling Place has launched its COUNSELING FOR KIDS program to help children learn healthy stress management skills, develop positive habits and grow into happier, healthier teens. Our counseling and group courses help tweens and teens adopt age appropriate strategies to help them become adults living healthy, happy and productive lives. Emotionally healthy kids are more likely to grow into emotionally healthy adults. For years, we haven't turned away requests for help due to financial limitations. Please help us keep it that way by donating today.
