A Word from our Director

Welcome to Hyde Park Counseling! For over 31 years, we have been committed to providing Christ-centered counseling and education through the delivery of professional services, lay-counselor training, and involvement in the greater Austin community.

Our aim is to direct individuals and families to Jesus Christ by offering biblically-based solutions to life challenges. By partnering with pastors and local churches, we desire to help equip individuals in the body of Christ to minister to the needs of others through professional counseling services, In-Christ Conferences, Workshops, and the Advanced Training Certification Class.

As an affiliate ministry of Hyde Park Baptist Church, we are centrally located in the Austin area allowing us to provide a support system for many churches in the community. This enables us to be committed to promoting healthy church connections for all of our clients and their families. It is a blessing to see how the body of Christ is working together in the Austin area as our network of church leaders and pastors has grown and more churches are becoming involved in our ministry.

My prayer is that you will find Hyde Park Counseling to be a place of hope and healing.
