What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is the use of technology to deliver health care services from a distance. At the TCC, counselors located on the Texas A&M University campus use telephone and videoconferencing technology to meet with clients at our five partner locations. By using video and phone to meet with clients, we are able to provide free services to as many individuals, families, and communities as possible. Our research shows that clients who receive counseling services through telehealth experience symptom improvements in as few as four sessions.
Protecting Your Privacy
We are committed to maintaining our clients’ privacy. No record of your attendance or participation in counseling services will be released from our clinic without your written permission. The TCC complies with state and federal laws that protect your confidentiality, and all counselors-in-training are required to adhere to the American Psychological Association’s Code of Ethics.
In rare cases, ethical guidelines and state/federal laws may require us to release client information without written permission. In Texas, mental health care providers are required to break confidentiality in cases involving: (a) serious risk of suicide or lethal self-harm, (b) child abuse, (c) elder abuse, (d) health oversight, (e) court order, (f) worker’s compensation. Please call us at 979-458-9990 with any questions about our confidentiality policy.
Types of Counseling Services
The TCC offers several types of counseling, and we are always developing new services to meet our clients’ needs. On average, clients use about nine sessions to achieve their treatment goals. We have provided over 8,000 hours of services since we opened in 2009 (that’s nearly $1 million worth of free counseling).
To request an appointment
Individual Counseling for Adults is our most frequently used service. Adult clients are matched with one of our counselors for weekly appointments. Counseling sessions are usually 45 minutes in duration. TCC counselors help clients cope with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, grief, traumatic events, suicidal thoughts, and other mental health concerns.
Individual Counseling for Adolescents (ages 13 and up) is also available for families struggling with emotional, behavioral, and adjustment-related concerns. Counselors treating younger clients will usually include parents/caregivers in the treatment process to achieve the best outcomes for every family.
Couples Counseling is available for married or unmarried partners who want to address relationship issues including communication, conflict resolution, grief, family planning, or other concerns.
Mindfulness Groups meet weekly and are designed to help clients learn relaxation and mindfulness skills for stress management.
Intake Paperwork. All clients are required to fill out intake paperwork before beginning treatment. We will provide you with intake paperwork when you arrive for your first session. You can also print the intake forms and fill them out before you arrive.
Release Form. Clients may want to give the TCC permission to share their information with a third party, such as a family member, health care provider, employer, or disability services office. The TCC can only share your information after receiving your written permission. To give us permission to share information with a third party, please complete the form below and return it to our main office (fax: 979-458-8445).
