Who Are We?


New Life Institute is a non-profit counseling and training organization, dedicated to changing lives by providing professional therapy services to those in emotional or spiritual need regardless of ability to pay.


We provide counseling services by appointment at our location just north of the University of Texas.


New Life Institute is not equipped to address immediate crises, so if you are feeling suicidal, go to the nearest emergency room or contact Integral Care's Mobile Crisis Outreach Team 24/7 at

512-472-HELP (4357).


New Life Institute sees clients of any age, race, sex, spiritual/relgious belief, sexual orientation, gender identity, political affiliation, and national/cultural background.

New Life Institute relies on generous donations, from individuals and organizations, in order to offer affordable professional mental health services. If you are considering making a contribution to the mental health of your community, click the "Donate" button on this page. We greatly appreciate your support!

Thank you and farewell to Board Member,  
Pastor Wynn Stenftenagel​!

New Life Institute has suspended in-person counseling sessions for the time being to fight the spread of COVID-19. 

However, mental health support is more important than ever, so New Life Institute is offering telehealth sessions through HIPAA-compliant video conferencing.

New Life is also committed to providing affordable mental health services to the community, so ask our administrative personnel about sliding scale fees.

If you would like to make a telehealth appointment with one of our psychotherapists, fill out our online intake form, and our administrative team will contact you to get started.


From all of us at New Life, we wish you good physical and mental health during this difficult time.

Heartfelt thanks and best wishes to Pastor Wynn Stenftenagel, Member and Secretary of New Life Institute’s Board of Directors, as she steps down to devote even more time to her work with the Methodist church.


Wynn, we’re so grateful for your years of initiative, enthusiasm, and insight in support of New Life’s cause. Your devotion to our organization has benefitted so many, and your presence will be missed. All the best with what comes next!
