Counseling During COVID-19

The staff at the Counseling Center want you to know that we are here during these uncertain times. We have made changes in our service delivery. All counseling appointments will be moved to a telehealth format. We will utilize the videoconferencing feature available in TAO (Therapy Assistance Online). You can access TAO through the following website:  If you have access to an electronic device and internet at home, you can access the videoconferencing feature from home.


If you DO NOT have access to an electronic device or internet at home a Production Room is reserved in the Underground. You will have access to a computer with a webcam. For assistance locating the Production Room, please see the staff at the circle desk in the main entrance of the Ware building.


If you would like to make an appointment outside of these hours, please call the Counseling Center at 806-371-5900. We are available Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.


In order to participate in telehealth we need you to go to the following site and read and sign the Teletherapy Consent form:

A few things to keep in mind for teletherapy:

  1. We will need your current physical address at the beginning of each session.
  2. We will need a current phone number at the beginning of each session.
  3. Selecting a private location for the session is important.
  4. All individuals present for the virtual visit must be within the view of the camera.
  5. The therapist and student agree not to record the session without permission.

Providing support to you is of the utmost importance to us. We look forward to “seeing” you virtually.  If you have questions or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 806-371-5900.
