Promoting Inspiration For Healing & Transformation

Southwest Family Guidance Center & Institute was created to provide specialized and evidence-based services to individuals, families and professionals. The Guidance Center has grown from traditional office-based therapy to include a multitude of programs including home, community and school-based services. Our Institute was created to provide ongoing professional development, training and education for community leaders, stakeholders and therapists, while actively producing and participating in community-wide initiatives and events.

Both components of Southwest Family, the Guidance Center & the Institute, are successful as a result of our emphasis on hiring professionals who are not only educated and credentialed but also committed and passionate. We prioritize staff and clients with a high degree of respect and compassion. Our programs and modalities produce the high-quality results you would expect from a sound foundation in industry best-practices and a positive, professional culture.
