Counseling at RCA

IMG_5918Asking for help can be difficult, but everyone needs help sometimes. Counseling can be of benefit if you are depressed or anxious; if you are experiencing grief, trauma, or abuse; or if you are simply struggling with everyday life. Counseling can be a difficult process but also a deeply rewarding one. River City Advocacy’s counseling program serves New Braunfels, Comal County, and the surrounding areas. Please contact us if you are interested in setting up an appointment with a counselor.

We offer individual, couples, and family counseling by appointment.

Our counseling services are available to anyone regardless of race, ethnicity, religious belief, sexual orientation, or gender identity. 

All of our counselors and therapists are licensed by their respective state board of examiners and guided by a professional code of ethics for their profession. Some may be working towards their full license as interns. All client records are kept individually by our counselors. To request that your information be shared with someone besides your counselor, you must contact your counselor to obtain a form allowing the disclosure of that specific information. River City Advocacy abides by all federal and state law regarding privacy of your protected health information and cannot release your information to anyone without your consent except under limited circumstances. You may request at any time a copy of these or any other policies listed on the counseling application. Any request for records must be submitted to your therapist directly.

Payment

In an effort to maintain open availability for those with limited financial resources, the majority of our counseling services are provided on a sliding scale according to income. We also currently accept Blue Cross Blue Shield on a limited basis.  For questions about our fee schedule, please contact us for more info. Payment is due at time of service.
