Capital Area Counseling

Created in response to a growing need for quality mental health services at an affordable price, Capital Area Counseling (CAC) has been providing low cost, effective and accessible psychotherapy to Central Texans for over 30 years.

Your life is precious to us!  We are a thriving group of volunteer therapists at various stages in our professional development coming together to be there for you when you need it.

People come to us with a variety of concerns, needs and desires including:

  • recent or past trauma
  • experiences of grief and loss
  • depression
  • understanding and navigating a mental health diagnosis
  • desire to increase vitality, feelings of aliveness and presence
  • feeling stuck
  • stress and anxiety
  • navigating LGBTQQ identities
  • relationships, communication, intimacy and sex
  • family dynamics
  • life transitions
  • meaning, purpose, personal growth and more

Located in the heart of East Austin – just east of the UT campus – we offer individual, relationship, family and group therapy sessions in English and Spanish.

Our income-based fees allow access to a private and personalized experience without the restriction of session limits – the length of service is solely determined by you and your therapist, therefore sessions can continue for as long as it makes sense to work together.

Please call (512) 302-1000 x100 with any questions, or to schedule an appointment.
