Distance Services

Counseling Services is available to all currently enrolled students!

Due to safety concerns during the current pandemic, all of our services are being offered via telehealth platforms.
We are continuing to provide all services-individual, couples, and group counseling! Please call our office at (936) 468-2401. Our friendly reception staff will schedule your appointment, and your counselor will then contact you with log-on information. If you have concerns about problems accessing reliable internet or securing a confidential space from which to "zoom," let your counselor know--we will work with you to make your sessions helpful, accessible, and confidential.

In an urgent situation, call us, or come to our office in 332 Rusk, and we will arrange an emergency assessment. Or you may contact one of the emergency resources below:
