FALL 2020 UPDATE:

In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Student Counseling & Wellness Services (SC&WS) office will primarily offer services via phone and/or Webex. Any students interested in scheduling an appointment should call (210) 784-1331 Monday through Friday, 8:00AM – 5:00PM. If this is a life-threatening emergency, please use the emergency resources listed below the Nourish to Flourish video.

Any faculty, staff, or visitors with general inquiries should call (210) 784-1331 Monday through Friday, 8:00AM – 5:00PM or email stucounseling@tamusa.edu.

**Please know that any individuals visiting the SC&WS office in-person are required to wear face coverings and must use hand sanitizer when they enter the Modular C building. 


The Office of Student Counseling & Wellness Services (SC&WS) provides brief individual, couples*, and group therapy, crisis intervention, consultation, case management, and prevention services. Brief therapy is defined as engaging with students on a bi-weekly basis over the course of a semester or two during a student’s academic tenure. For more information, please call (210) 784-1331 or visit our website at www.tamusa.edu/studentcounseling. 

SC&WS services can help facilitate students’ academic and life goals as well as enhance their personal growth and well-being.  Our staff of licensed mental health professionals work with students to identify treatment goals and effective strategies to cope with difficult situations. All mental health services provided by the Office of Student Counseling & Wellness Services (SC&WS) are free, confidential (as the law allows), and are not part of a student’s academic or university record. 

All enrolled A&M-SA students are eligible to receive an initial consultation (ICON) appointment to assess their needs. The ICON is used to make treatment recommendations based on individual symptoms, severity, appropriateness of services, and availability of resources. At the conclusion of the ICON appointment, the licensed provider will render a clinical recommendation based on services that are best suited to meet individual needs. 

*Please note that couples therapy services are typically only offered to students in the summer semesters. This is primarily due to prioritizing the volume of individual and group therapy appointments in the fall and spring semesters. A $3.00 fee will be charged to students who no show or do not call 24 hours in advance of their scheduled appointment.
