Counseling Services Faculty and Staff
We are committed to providing staff and faculty with resources, information, and support to maximize your ability to help our students.
CARE Team Information
Are you urgently concerned about a currently enrolled UHCL student? Please consider making a report to the Crisis Awareness Response Emergency (CARE) Team for students with behavioral issues or other problems that are interfering with student success and functioning.
Referrals are made to the Dean of Students Office so a CARE Team representative can contact the student and make necessary referrals:
Interactions and relationships with students or co-workers are sometimes challenging and stressful. Counseling Services offers confidential consultation to staff and faculty to assist with problem-solving and identifying next steps.
Referrals for Counseling
Your success and happiness at work can be affected by a number of different factors not related to your job competence. We can help if you are struggling with personal issues including: anxiety, depression, feeling overwhelmed, family or relationship problems, coping with loss/grief, conflict management, self-esteem, body image, and eating disorders. We offer staff and faculty a free, confidential appointment for you to discuss your concerns and obtain referral information for counseling resources in the community.
This mobile app helps track your moods, feelings and thoughts and provides coping mechanisms to mitigate intense stress levels.
Sign up with your UHCL email account for free — available to students, faculty, and staff.
Self-Help Online Resources include free, anonymous screenings, handouts and guided activities.
On campus, outreach displays are updated throughout the year as topics change. Typically, handouts are available near the displays.
We also have an assortment of books, CDs, and other resources in our office that are available for checkout.
The Mind Spa and Biofeedback
Feeling Stressed? Looking for new relaxation techniques? Just need a space to relax and unwind? The Mind Spa is a biofeedback lab and relaxation room available to you during our regular office hours.

With biofeedback, you’re connected to sensors that give you information about your bodily functions, such as heart rate and skin conductance. This information helps you make subtle changes in your body, which can help with relaxation. You will practice deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, and mindfulness.
The Mind Spa and Biofeedback are free services. Call 281-283-2580 to reserve a time.
We have knowledge and training related to a variety of topics including: learning support, career planning and placement, personal development, cooperative education, stress management, and mindfulness.
