Caring for Mind, Body and Spirit since 1972

Interface-Samaritan is a non-profit organization that encourages human development by providing professional counseling and education services from a Christian perspective to anyone who asks. Founded in 1972 by a group of ecumenical pastors, Interface provides faith-sensitive services across all religious affiliations, determined by client preference, and across socio-economic levels of the broader Houston community, regardless of the individual’s ability to pay. Based on the belief that physical, mental, and spiritual health are interdependent, Interface helps children, adolescents, families, and adults realize their potential for full and productive lives by caring for mind, body, and spirit.

In addition to providing services out of its main office in central Houston, Interface brings quality behavioral health services to under/uninsured communities throughout greater Houston through 5 community locations and through partnerships with area schools, shelters, churches, and veterans’ support organizations. New partners are added each year.


Interface-Samaritan Counseling Centers is fully accredited by the Samaritan Institute (, an international organization that oversees the policies and practices of 75+ affiliated centers (with more than 400 offices) throughout the United States and Japan. The Samaritan network is one of the largest providers of professional outpatient counseling; all centers in the program must comply with nationally benchmarked behavioral-health quality standards.

Interface-Samaritan Counseling Centers completed its most recent accreditation review in 2016 and once again received FULL accreditation for another four years. Paul Bretz, the Samaritan Institute’s Executive Vice President, stated in his accreditation report:

“The superlatives are virtually endless … to describe the strengths and ongoing accomplishments of Interface-Samaritan Counseling Centers. The ingredients for this highly successful Center include competent, quality clinical and administrative staff members; deeply committed board members; a truly visionary and indefatigable Executive Director; clear grasp of the key elements of fund development; solid community collaborative partnerships; and strong support from local congregations.”
