Group Counseling

Group Counseling

Working on issues within a group setting can be a highly supportive and productive way to address personal concerns.  Students who share common concerns meet weekly as a group with one or more counselors to explore a specific topic and develop coping skills.  Group offerings vary each semester and lists are updated a few weeks before the semester begins.

If you are interested in a group call 512-245-2208 to be added to the group list. A group leader will contact you to schedule a pre-group consultation.  Please consider activating your voice mail if you would like a message to be left when you are unavailable. 

Groups are free to currently enrolled Texas State University students. Confidentiality in group therapy is respected.
