Counseling Center


Affirm. Support. Uplift.
We strive to provide mental health services to help support our students’ growth academically and personally. We do this by providing clinical services that affirm a student’s identity and experiences, support their goals, while also uplifting hope and a growth mindset.


Student Counseling Services strives to support and empower our campus community by providing personalized care for the integrative wellness needs of each individual. We strive to create a safe environment, enhanced by the principles of compassion, respect, and autonomy.


In response to the Sars-CoV-2 pandemic, we are offering telemental health services through an encrypted service provider that is HIPAA compliant. If you prefer to be seen via telemental health, we are pleased to announce that we can provide those appointments for people in the safety of their home or other location. Please note, our licensed staff can only provide psychotherapeutic services to students residing in Texas. However, we can still provide services (supportive listening, skills training, mentoring, etc.) to any students that need our assistance.


Student Counseling Services operates from a holistic approach to student development. Through counseling, we aspire to help students reach their academic and personal goals and achieve as much success as possible while attending Texas A&M—Texarkana. Our services include academic skills assistance, consultation and referral, crisis intervention, individual and group counseling, and educational outreach.

We play an active role in advocating the concerns of students to the university community, and serve as a resource for faculty, staff, and parents. The counseling center fosters an atmosphere of mutual respect and understanding where everyone feels welcome. We are sensitive to the needs of ethnic and cultural minorities, LGBTQ, returning veterans, and non-traditional students. We collaborate with other campus departments and community agencies, utilize referral resources within the university and community, and serve as an integral part of campus mental health.


Personal counseling allows students to talk with an objective, caring professional about problems or concerns. It can help students make good decisions for their individual well-being, improve relationships, confidence and self-acceptance, increase self-awareness, and provide coping strategies. Student Counseling Services provides individual and group counseling for undergraduate and graduate students. Common concerns in which a student may seek counseling are academic skills assistance, anxiety, stress, sadness and depression, fear of failure, low self-esteem, relationship issues, substance abuse, suicidal thoughts, or coping with feelings of anger, guilt, grief, and loneliness. Counseling is a highly individualized process in which you and your counselor will identify problems and work together to implement healthy cognitive strategies.


A student may set up an appointment with a counselor by visiting our office or by calling (903) 334-6613. Students may also email counseling.services@ace.tamut.edu; however, please note that email is not a confidential form of communication. During your first visit, the counselor will explore the issues that led you to schedule an appointment, and then talk to you about how Student Counseling Services may best provide the type of help you need. If Student Counseling Services is unable to provide the type of services needed or requested, we will refer to an outside agency.

Services are made available through the use of student service fees; there is no additional charge for services. All counseling is confidential.
