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.

If a student desires counseling services or has counseling needs, will first call your Academic Advisor on campus. The Academic Advisor will have an assessment checklist of questions to ask the student and, after doing the short assessment, will refer the student to one of the following:
- The student's Primary Care Physician. This physician may see the student, or refer them to a mental health provider in the area.
- The Emergency Room of the nearest hospital. For more urgent needs, this will give the student a direction to take to get further resources and be seen immediately.
- Call the local Police Office. If the Academic Advisor thinks, based on the assessment checklist, that the student is in need of urgent care, he/she may ask the police to drive by the student's residence to ensure safety.
