Making an Initial Appointment

End Of Semester Sessions

Beginning Thursday, April 5th the Counseling Center is able to offer enrolled students seeking to initiate counseling a one-time session since the Counseling Center does not have the capacity to add ongoing appointments at this point in the semester. These one-time sessions are an hour in length and focus on problem solving more immediate issues. The clinician will help you identify resources for the remainder of the semester and possibly over the summer. If you will be enrolled in summer or fall classes and we determine therapy at the Counseling Center would be beneficial, you will not have to repeat this process when you call to schedule an appointment when classes begin.


Therapist Assistance Online, an interactive, dynamic, and easy-to-access online program is available to the Texas State community and provides skill building exercises in support of anxiety, depression, and other common concerns.


If you are interested in using Counseling Center services, please call 512-245-2208 or visit our office in LBJ Student Center 5-4.1.  If you are seeking Group Counseling or Couples Counseling, please tell the front desk staff.

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.

You can initiate Counseling Center services through one of four types of  consultation appointments.
