Welcome to Families, Inc.


Families, Inc. Counseling Services is a private counseling agency accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC) with outpatient facilities throughout Northeast, North Central and Central Arkansas. Since our establishment in 2000, we have taken the unique approach of providing services in the client’s home and school, as well as the outpatient clinic.

Families, Inc. offers a variety of therapeutic services for all ages on an individual, couple, family and group basis. Through counseling, individuals receive emotional support from a licensed professional, who helps the client work to resolve conflicts with others, understand feelings such as anxiety and depression, and try out new solutions to old problems. The length of treatment, of course, depends on the complexity and severity of problems.
