Family Counseling

At the Julianna Poor Memorial Counseling Center at Houston's First Baptist Church we have developed a “Team” approach to meet the needs of families that come in for counseling. Often when a family has issues or a crisis, one or two individuals are the focus. We have come to believe that the best way to see those individuals succeed and for the family to succeed is to get everyone involved.

We see the family as a team with each person having an important role in change. Parent(s) are the leaders who often need some more specific direction in how to deal with their children. Children are still growing and learning and need some help sometimes expressing what they need or how to relate to siblings.

Our goal is to help parents understand how to relate to their children in a way that is beneficial for both and provide a safe way for children to express themselves.

If you are interested in seeking counseling for your family (children 17 and younger) we ask that you fill out the online inquiry and your information will be sent to us. We will then contact you about setting up a parent intake and getting the process started. If you have any additional questions, please contact Mary.Ring@HoustonsFirst.org or Greg.Curnutte@HoustonsFirst.org.
