• “Always positive and focused on the problem my child was facing. I liked that I (mom) was always included in sessions so that I could help as much as I could at home. I felt like we were a team. I absolutely loved the way our therapist used her strategies to help my daughter. The waiting area is super helpful. Thanks to the play leaders I was able to bring my son and join in my daughter’s sessions. You guys are awesome!”

Austin Child Guidance Center (ACGC) offers a variety of outpatient mental health services. First, an intake worker speaks with a parent (or guardian) by phone to determine if ACGC’s services are a good fit for the family. If ACGC’s services are a good fit, then families are eligible for individual, family, and group therapy; psychiatric evaluations; psychological assessments; and parent education classes. All services are offered on a sliding fee scale, based on family size and income.  Selected insurance plans are also accepted. Learn more about Payment for Services.

In addition to onsite services, Austin Child Guidance Center also provides services at other locations such as schools, a community health center, and the juvenile justice center. Austin Child Guidance Center collaborates with many other community agencies to provide services.
