Austin, Texas Area Victim, and Survivor Resources 

At Better Path Family Counseling, we are a deep-rooted trauma healing center. We are not able to take all cases that desire to become clients here. This means if you are currently in an abusive marriage, you can not heal in the same place that is making you sick. We would be the type of treatment clinic to reach out to once you have left the abusive marriage or domestic partnership and are ready and willing to begin the healing journey. We are providing this list of resources that could be of immediate assistance to you.
