Often time’s people think they will meet Mr. or Mrs. Right and that they will live happily ever after. This fairy tale myth is far from reality. What most of us don’t learn is that good relationships take time and hard work.

We want connection- a space to be vulnerable and truly seen. But emotional intimacy is risky, and that scares us, especially with a difficult history! Instead of being vulnerable, we build up walls to protect us. Let's break down the walls and build a loving connection.

Houston, nicknamed Space City, was founded in 1836 and is now the fourth largest city in the United States with a population of 5 million. Its history has been turbulent since significant oil discoveries in 1901, when Houston became the oil and gas capital of the world. Then in 1973 NASA established its space center and the population surged. The 1980s saw a world-wide oil recession which caused Houston to diversify into aerospace and biotechnology in the 1990s. If you are visiting Houston with your family, be sure to make a trip to the Southern part of the city to visit the NASA center.1 Set aside an entire day as there is much to see for children and couples alike.

As one of the largest centers of business in Texas and the surrounding states and the core of a rapidly evolving system of suburbs, Houston is home to thousands of families.

Therapy Affordability Meter for Houston, TX

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Houston, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Houston may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Houston public health department.
