If you are interested in using Counseling Center services, please call 512-245-2208 or visit our office in LBJSC 5-4.1. If you are seeking Group Counseling or Couples Counseling, please tell the front desk staff.
You can initiate Counseling Center services through one of four levels of same day consultation appointments.
We understand your situation is unique, cannot be fully described and that a feeling of emergency or crisis is defined by you. In our effort to best serve each student, we will respond according to your description of your consultation need.
When you call or come in for your consultation appointment you will be asked to indicate the level of appointment you are seeking (see levels below):
- Level 1. EMERGENCY CONSULTATIONS: This level is for students experiencing a crisis and in need of an immediate consultation with a counselor.
- Level 2. URGENT CONSULTATIONS: This level is for students experiencing significant distress or psychological difficulties in need of an urgent consultation with a counselor.
- Level 3. INITIAL CONSULTATIONS (ICONs): This is the most common level of need for students seeking counseling center services. ICONs are same-day appointments.
- Level 4. ONE-TIME CONSULTATIONS: If you are NOT interested in starting therapy or in on-going therapy at the Counseling Center.
Please be on time for your appointment. In order to serve all students effectively, your appointment may be rescheduled if you are late.
