Each student is unique, and the Health & Counseling Center (HCC) staff is passionate about helping students be the best version of themselves. Our clinicians listen and assess in a compassionate way, and make recommendations that align with the student's goals.

A concern may be resolved in a single session or additional sessions may be scheduled. If a student’s concern requires counseling beyond the scope of the HCC's resources, community resources will be provided through case managment services.       

Counseling services are offered primarily remotely. To get started with an HCC clinician, please call 512-448-8538 during business hours for an initial phone triage. Our clinicians will assess for the most appropriate treatment option, which may include phone/video sessions, crisis services or referrals/resources. See below for our full menu of counseling offerings.
