As of March 23, counseling will be offering remote services, as a result of COVID-19.

We provide brief, strengths-based psychological support and crisis intervention to address the emotional, social, and academic needs of our students.

If students are experiencing a psychological crisis, they should contact Counseling Services during normal business hours, or the University Police Department at 512-448-8444 to reach the counselor on call in the evening and on weekends.

Our therapists work with students to address a wide range of concerns, including but not limited to:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • College transition

  • Illness or death of a loved one

  • Relationships

  • Gender identity

  • Body image

  • Acculturation

  • Sexual assault and violence

  • Identity and development

  • Stress​

  • Academic performance

We have recently changed how students get started with Counseling! Students are asked to come in during business hours, and touch base with a therapist in order to identify what the student's needs and goals are.

Every student is unique in what they need to achieve optimal functioning. A concern may be resolved in a single session or additional sessions may be scheduled. Additionally, a therapist may refer a student to group therapy or collaborate with other university resources. If a student’s situation requires counseling beyond the scope of the Health & Counseling Center resources, a referent to professional services in Austin is offered.
