The Lovett Center was constructed, in part, around the ideas of Common Factors Theory and the Sharing Economy.

Common Factors:

Despite the individual differences in approach, training, and specialization that each clinician operating at The Lovett Center may have, they also share a great deal in common.

In fact, what Common Factors Theory demonstrates is that within therapy there are really just four essential elements that every successful therapy process has in common:


The Relationship

    The relationship with the therapist can account for 30% of therapeutic change made in treatment.


    What the therapist says and does in the treatment accounts for 15% of therapeutic change.


    The instillation of hope can account for up to 15% of progress in treatment.

Supplemental Support

    Extra-therapeutic factors, or in other words, the support you have outside of the therapy to enhance your life can account for up to 40% of change you experience.

At The Lovett Center we have co-created an environment in which all four of these critical elements are woven throughout the therapy process.

Sharing Economy:

For clients of The Lovett Center the Sharing Economy refers to our belief that by creating opportunities for clinicians to share ideas, experience, and skills with one another we can vastly improve the quality of care that clients receive.

On another level the sharing economy operates at The Lovett Center in the form of the clinicians sharing the cost of administrative support services. By cost sharing for administrative service your care provider is able to deliver a level of attention and professional service that is unparalleled in other therapy settings.

How do I get started?

The Lovett Center recognizes how overwhelming the initial process of starting therapy can be. Therefore, we provide two options to help ease the process. The first option is to read about the clinicians practicing at The Lovett Center and then call our mainline to schedule. The second option is to call our mainline and we will help connect you with a clinician specific to your needs.

How much will it cost?

Fees for clinical services vary based on the clinicians’ level of training and experience. At The Lovett Center, many of the clinicians offer sliding scale appointments.

While the majority of the clinicians are not currently participating in managed care insurance plans, we encourage you to contact your insurance providers to receive information about your mental health benefits. Questions to ask about your insurance benefits are provided below:

Do I have mental health benefits?

What is my deductible and has it been met? How many mental health sessions per calendar year does my insurance plan cover? How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network mental health provider? How do I obtain reimbursement for therapy with an out-of-network provider? What is the coverage amount per therapy session? Is approval required from my primary care physician? You will be responsible for seeking reimbursement and filing claims. However, The Lovett Center will be happy to provide you with a receipt with all of the required information for submission.

Our Mission:

The mission of The Lovett Center is to cultivate and sustain a thriving community of helping professionals, whom we support through high-touch service, practice management, advanced education, and a collegial work environment.

Our Vision:

We believe that our continued efforts to foster collaboration, post-graduate educational opportunities, administrative support, and a healthy work culture can fundamentally change the way that outpatient practitioners serve their clients across the country. Our vision is to replicate our Houston based initiative in key markets around the United States in order to create a more supportive, knowledgeable, and connected way of delivering service to outpatient clients.

The Lovett Center provides a unique resource to local helping professionals by offering fully furnished part-time offices, as well as traditional lease occupancy in the heart of Montrose, one of Houston’s most creative neighborhoods.

Unlike most commercial offices, The Lovett Center delivers beautiful, intentionally designed office space for clinicians. We believe that an essential element of The Lovett Center is the provision of an attractive building that can support the healing work that professionals are doing with their clients.

We are a Community Hub for continued learning, collaboration, and innovation with other helping professionals. At The Lovett Center we believe in providing practitioners with the autonomy of private practice, while creating a work environment that feels like a community.

In addition to office space, we provide practice management and administrative support that clinicians in solo-practice cannot otherwise afford.

The Lovett Center equips helping professionals with:

  • Client reception and scheduling
  • HIPAA compliant phone extension and voicemail
  • An electronic health record
  • Copy, print, and mail service
  • Extended operating hours and availability, including Saturdays
  • Highly skilled and professional administrative support
  • Continuing education events and opportunities for clinical support and supervision

(The Lovett Center is an approved continuing education sponsor/provider for Social Workers and Licensed Professional Counselors in the state of Texas)

Our services are available for a low monthly fee that scales with the growth of your practice, ensuring that your overhead never outpaces your billable revenue.

The Lovett Center can also offer additional administrative support services such as:

  • Billing & invoicing
  • After-hours answering service
  • Accounting
(Pricing for these additional services is available upon request.)

We ensure that clinicians in our building have the administrative and clinical support to do their best work with those they serve.
