Currently enrolled UHCL students can receive individual, couples and group therapy sessions. Counseling is free and confidential. If interested, please call 281-283-2580 or stop by SSCB 3.103 to schedule an initial consultation appointment.
The initial consultation is a one hour appointment consisting of 30 minutes of paperwork and a 20-minute meeting with a therapist. The appointment helps to identify current concerns, review Counseling Services policies and procedures and develop the best plan for further assistance.
You will be asked to complete web component data forms and paperwork within 30 minutes.
After completing all data forms and paperwork, you will meet with a therapist for
20 minutes to discuss your current concerns and your options for obtaining further
assistance. Options include individual, couples therapy, group therapy and/or psychiatry.
The standard individual or couples therapy appointment will be for 45-50 minutes with
your assigned therapist. Group therapy sessions are scheduled for 1 hour and 20 minutes.
In addition to our services, students may be referred to consult with another office on campus, such as the Career Services or the Student Success Center. Your therapist may also refer you to a community mental health provider if your concerns would be best addressed by a therapist who can offer long-term or specialized mental health treatment. If a community referral is warranted, your therapist will help connect you to appropriate services. Please contact us if you have a disability that requires accommodations to complete the initial consultation paperwork.
