Welcome to the Counseling Center


Counseling Center Services

Counseling Center services are free, confidential, and provided by trained professionals to currently enrolled Texas State students while classes are in session.

Counseling Center Services include brief individual, group, and couples counseling, consultation and crisis response, and workshops about coping with stress and other mental health topics.

Individual counseling is also available on a limited basis at the Round Rock campus.  Click here for details.

End of Semester 

Beginning Monday, April 8th the Counseling Center is able to offer enrolled students seeking an initial consultation in order to begin counseling a one-time session.  The Counseling Center does not have the capacity to add ongoing appointments at this point in the semester.  You will need 90 minutes.  30 minutes are needed to complete data entry and an hour will be spent meeting with the clinician to 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.

The Counseling Center continues to offer Emergency and Urgent consultations on a daily basis during business hours.

Therapy 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.

  • Texas State is committed to the holistic well-being of its students. In an effort to encourage Texas State students to call Emergency 911 in case of a drug or alcohol related medical emergency, a student will be granted amnesty from formal university disciplinary procedures if:

    -The student requested medical assistance in response to the possible alcohol or drug overdose of another person;

    -The student was the “first” person to make a request for medical assistance;

    -The student remained on the scene until medical assistance arrived; and

    -The student cooperated with medical assistance and law enforcement personnel.

    The reporting student will be expected to provide an account of the episode/event to a university official regardless of the amnesty standard being applied
