The APACenter Has Closed
Sadly, after serving the Austin and surrounding communities since 2007, we have decided to close the APACenter. We are grateful at having the privilege to help so many people over the years and proud of our work. But, as the great bard William Shakespeare wrote, "All good things must come to an end." We have finally arrived at that end. However, we also look to inspiration from the lyrics that can be found in the pop song "Closing Time" by Semisonic: "Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." So, here's to new beginnings!
If you are looking for psychological services, we recommend that you contact some of APACenter former psychologists at their new practice, Capital Area Psychological & Evaluation Services, or CAPES. If you are trying to reach Dr. Mike Brooks, he can be reached through his website of www.drmikebrooks.com.
The information below about the APACenter is being kept for legacy purposes.
Life can be a difficult journey at times. Sometimes we need some help along the way. If you are looking for an Austin psychologist or therapist for you or your child, we have a professional at the APACenter who can meet your needs. Our goal is to help you or your child improve well-being, reduce suffering, have healthy relationships, and find success in school, career, and life.
Our psychologists have been serving Austin and surrounding areas since 2007. We offer a wide variety of services. These include psychological and neuropsychological assessments, therapy, consultation, and coaching for people of all ages.
Please take a few moments to browse our site to learn more about our services and how we can help. Feel free to call us at (512) 891-1500, and one of our client care coordinators, Paige or Diane, are happy to assist you as well. We look forward to hearing from you!---The APACenter Team
