Couples struggling with their relationship. A young man with a cancer diagnosis. Families dealing with a loved one’s death. Parents and teens who cannot connect. Overwhelmed parents seeking effective parenting skills. A child who is anxious – or suddenly withdrawn and sad. Adults with traumas that have never been dealt with or those coping with the stress that life brings.
All will find hope and compassion at Counseling and Consulting Associates of North Texas in McKinney, where an extensive staff of experts provides care for children, adolescents, teens, adults and the terminally ill.
For more than 25 years, CCA has provided confidential, comprehensive mental health services to North Texans of all ages. Its staff includes a vast variety of licensed counselors, social workers, play therapists, art therapists, psychologists and a psychiatrist offering care for individuals, couples and families.
CCA prides itself on offering the widest variety of counseling services and the most diverse group of specialists in Collin County – all conveniently housed under one roof. In addition, CCA is proud to partner with the employee assistance programs (EAPs) of many agencies and businesses throughout North Texas.
Dr. Suzanne Hales, CCA’s founder, opened McKinney’s first family therapy center in 1986.
“I opened CCA so that families or anyone needing a counselor’s care could find help in one place,” Dr. Hales said. “We recognize that for people who need help, it can be exhausting and overwhelming to seek different specialists for all of the different psychological and social needs an individual or family might have. That is why we provide so many specialties under one roof.”
CCA’s experts realize that life is hard and change is difficult, so their goals are to tailor their approach to each individual situation, Dr. Hales said. “We will listen, offer learning, help uncover your strengths, provide a respite, and allow you to discover what matters most in order to lead a healthier, more productive life,” she said.
