TXWES Community Counseling Center
At Texas Wesleyan University Community Counseling Center, our mission is to provide counseling and education to Texas Wesleyan students, faculty and staff. Consultation and training help facilitate the retention, adjustment and development of the University overall. Maintaining quality service, an ongoing goal of excellence, enables us to optimally meet the mental health needs of our university population as well as those within the community who seek our services.
The Texas Wesleyan Community Counseling Center has proudly served all Texas Wesleyan campuses and the surrounding community since opening our doors on September 24, 2017. The original Glick House was where we began and finally out grew in 2015 and moved to our current location, 3110 E Rosedale, on the South side of the campus.
Clinical services are provided by master-level and doctoral-level counseling students from the Graduate Counseling department. The Community Counseling Center director or a doctoral student may see Wesleyan faculty and staff per their request.
The director, a clinical graduate faculty member, as well as other doctoral students, supervise each case by weekly consultations with the student counselor.
As a training facility, videotaping, audiotaping, and/or observations (behind a one-way mirror by other counselors and/or supervisors) occur regularly as an additional benefit to the client.
All students (Including Distance Learners, See Below), faculty, and staff are entitled to free personal counseling services on campus at the Community Counseling Center.
We are also open to the public at a sliding scale rate starting at $10
At this time we do not do any online counseling, it is all face-to-face counseling.
We only accept cash or check as a form of payment.
The Counseling Centeroffers a broad range of personal counseling services without fees. A licensed counselor is available to assist students as well as faculty and staff with personal and interpersonal problems. Students have an opportunity to explore their concerns in a private, confidential meeting. When feasible, group meetings may be formed to help students cope with specific problem areas. Substance abuse assessment and intervention are available through the Counseling Center.
For those students who may benefit from resources in the community, referrals will be made to appropriate agencies and/or professionals. Students enrolled in the graduate counseling programs are referred to counseling services off campus. Specifically, these students are referred to the University of Texas at Arlington’s Graduate School of Mental Health Clinic. Students are charged by the clinic on a sliding scale based on the income of the student.
Distance Learning (DL) Students
The Community Counseling Center serves to be a resource to assist DL students with locating a counselor so the student may receive counseling services. For DL students residing outside travel access within Texas, the Community Counseling Center can provide up to five telephonic counseling sessions. Should the student need more than five telephonic sessions, The Community Counseling Center will serve as a resource to assist the student in a process for locating a counselor in their area who can provide local support. Students residing outside of Texas will be able to call the Community Counseling Center to receive a telephonic conversation to assess the student’s needs. The therapist who conducts the conversation can then refer the student to the best possible agency or provider in the student’s area.
