Among a wide range of counseling services offered, The Austin Stone Counseling Center is happy to provide specialized care for adoptive and foster families. Being a parent is hard but parenting a child who has come from a hard place and experienced neglect or trauma can be exponentially harder.

No parent or couple can do this alone. They need the support of their community and sometimes specialized care is helpful.

We are here to help!

Along with being adoptive and foster parents ourselves, our staff is equipped with counselors that have been trained and certified in Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®). TBRI is a family-based intervention model that is designed to empower children from hard places to receive healing from their past and form healthy attachments with their new family.

If you would like to learn more about this specialized care or if you have questions that you would like to process with one of our trained professionals, please contact us and a member of our staff will be happy to provide a free 15 minute phone consultation to help you determine the best way to move forward in this process.

Following the counselor’s assessment, you will have the option to schedule an appointment and continue care or we will do our best to suggest other resources that can help serve your specific needs.

You can also schedule a session here.

We are proud partner with Hope for Orphans, the Travis County Collaborative, and Fostering Hope Austin.
