Overview of DARCC Counseling

DARCC offers short and long-term individual counseling and therapeutic groups to help you on your journey toward healing.

Free bilingual counseling is available to Texas residents aged 13 and older who either (1) self-report sexual violence or (2) are loved ones of survivors of sexual violence. Our counselors, licensed by Texas and/or supervised by licensed staff, provide counseling services both in-person and virtually via a HIPAA-compliant version of Zoom. These options prioritize your privacy and ensure accessibility.

DARCC counselors provide compassionate, client-centered care. We do not practice faith-based counseling and do not discriminate based on race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ability, or any other factors.

Process of Obtaining Counseling:

If you are interested in learning more about counseling, please call our Clinical Line at 214-712-4901.

When you call, you won't be asked or expected to discuss details about your experience(s). Instead, we'll gather your name, phone number, and age, answer initial questions about our services, and send you our intake paperwork if you're interested in moving forward with counseling. Once this paperwork is completed, you'll have the opportunity to schedule a 50-minute intake assessment. This appointment provides an opportunity to deepen your understanding of our services and identify your specific counseling and advocacy needs.

Our business hours are Monday - Thursday from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. or Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. For support after hours, our 24/7 Crisis Hotline is available at 972-641-7273. Your information will be forwarded to our clinical team, and they will follow up with you within 2-3 business days. We prioritize your confidentiality and privacy.

What to Expect from Counseling at DARCC:

At DARCC, our dedicated counselors strive to create a safe and empathic space where survivors can courageously embark on their healing journey.

Our counselors bring expertise in gold-standard, evidence-based trauma practices, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). We are committed to meeting you exactly where you are on your path to healing. Together, we will figure out what works best for you – whether it's delving into the details and processing your experiences or focusing on present-moment coping strategies. It's all about tailoring our approach to align with your individual goals and preferences.

DARCC's core belief is grounded in empowering survivors. Your healing is at the heart of our mission, and we're here to support you every step of the way.
