Family Counseling & Resource Center
San Antonio Community Resource Directory
It is difficult to ignore the many problems families face on a daily basis. Roy Maas Youth Alternatives (RMYA) provides individual and family counseling, short-term pediatric and adolescent psychiatric services, and low-cost parent education classes for youth and their families. Assessments may be available, as needed, for temporary and voluntary short-term residential care at The Bridge Emergency Shelter, where residents have access to psychiatric services. Counseling Services: We work with families experiencing a variety of behavioral and emotional crises, including but not limited to: parent-child conflicts, anxiety, substance abuse, runaways, truancy, emotional control issues and anger management. We are an approved site for Bexar County Juvenile Probation and the Department of Family and Protective Services mandated counseling. Community Psychiatric Clinic: The RMYA Community Psychiatric Clinic provides short-term psychiatric services in conjunction with individual child and family counseling, for community children waiting to be seen by a private psychiatrist. Our counselors partner with psychiatric residents from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, to provide evaluations and follow-up assessments for children coping with mental health issues that could lead to abuse, hospitalization, or the breakdown of the family unit. RMYA also provides referrals for long-term psychiatric care when necessary. Parenting Classes: Our agency offers the Becoming a Love and Logic Parent training course. The seven week Becoming a Love and Logic Parent program was developed by Jim Fay, Charles Fay, PhD., and Foster W. Cline, M.D., of the Love and Logic Institute, Inc., in Golden, Colorado. Emergency Shelter Services: Is your family constantly fighting? Does your home feel out-of-control and chaotic? Do you feel like running away is your only option? You are not alone! RMYA offers shelter services for youth 5 to 17 years age. Please call our office for further information at (210) 340-7971
