In order to avoid the wait lists that have been regularly occurring, Ms. Vann’s new policy is to limit the number of new clients to 2 per month depending on the time clients can come to appointments.   Please note that appointments that are 4 and later fill up about 3 weeks in advance. Also, PLEASE NOTE, that the 3 women and 1 gentleman in my practice are able to accept new clients, can usually schedule an initial assessment within a week of a call, and offer evening with some weekend appointment times.  At Vann Counseling & Associates, our mission is to provide professional, focused, interactive, and educational sessions for an affordable rate because we do not believe that counseling should be a luxury item.  High-quality treatment that’s recognized throughout the DFW area without the high price. 

Her interns, with whom she meets with each week to staff cases, are still accepting new clients.

NOTICE: Teen Girls’ GROUP, Women’s Group, and Caregivers of those who injure group meet at Lori Vann’s office at 4020 Huffines Blvd. #120, Carrollton, 75010.  Teen Girls will start meeting in Tarrant County starting in September 2018.

I am located in Carrollton not too far from the major intersection of I-35 and Highway 121. If you are headed north on 121, I recommend that you take the Hebron exit vs. the Huffines exit. Once you have exited at Hebron, make a right onto the street. You will go a short distance and will see Sonic on your left-hand side. If you look directly across from the Sonic there is a small street called Huffines. You will make a right onto Huffines; the street will curve just a little bit and then you will see a 1-story, dark brick building on your left. My name will be on the monument and on the glass door.

If you are coming from Irving, you can either take LBJ/635 to I-35 and head north to 121 or you can take George Bush Tollway headed east to i-35. Once on I-35, look for the 121 exit and follow the above directions.

If you are coming from the Frisco area, you can head south on the North Dallas Tollway and take the 121 exit and head west on 121. After approximately 7 miles, 121 splits into 121 South and 121 Business; you will stay in the left-hand lanes and take 121 South to Hebron. After you exit on Hebron, you will make a left onto Hebron. Huffines will be on your right-hand side, directly across from the Sonic.

If you are coming from the Plano area, you can head west on Park/544 and the street changes names to Hebron in Carrollton. Huffines will be on your left-hand side, directly across from the Sonic. Huffines is before the Hebron and 121 interchange.
