Types of Services
We provide short-term individual and couples counseling, as well as psychiatric and dietitian services and appropriate referrals to the community.
Triage Appointments: Unless you are experiencing a crisis, your first scheduled appointment with the Baylor Counseling Center will usually be a 30 minute Triage Appointment with a therapist. The Triage is a consultation with a therapist to determine together the best way to address your personal concerns and then to help you access those services -- either in-house or as a referral. Just call 254-710-2467 to set up an appointment.
Individual Counseling: We primarily see students on an individual basis to address a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship problems, academic problems, coping with loss, and eating disorders to only mention a few. Counseling sessions are typically once per week for 50 minutes, although other arrangements can be made. Individual counseling services include initial evaluation and assessment, intervention, treatment planning, and short-term psychotherapy.
Groups and Clinics: Groups and clinics provide a great opportunity to gain support and to learn from others in the group or clinic, to realize others struggle with similar issues, and to work on relational issues in a safe environment. Some issues are ideal for a group or clinic setting. Groups and clinics are open to undergraduate and graduate students at BU. A variety of groups and clinics are being offered at the Counseling Center. Follow this link for a complete listing of our available Groups and Clinics
Couples Counseling: Students are eligible for couples counseling provided that at least one person in the couple is a Baylor student and has paid the student services fee. Dealing more effectively with conflict, family issues, adjusting to marriage, and other concerns can greatly improve a relationship.
Psychiatric Services: Psychiatric services are not currently available through the Baylor Counseling Center. We hope to make this service available at some point in the future. If you have questions about the availability of psychiatric services at the Baylor Counseling Center or would like to speak to our Case Manager regarding psychiatric referrals to the community, please contact us at 254-710-2467.
Dietitian Services: Regina Mastin, a licensed and registered dietitian, provides medical nutrition therapy for students. Nutrition counseling includes an assessment of current nutritional status, evaluation of current dietary intake, need for dietary modifications and education on appropriate diet. Students who have nutrition related diagnoses such as diabetes, hypoglycemia, anemia, gastrointestinal disorders, high cholesterol or high blood pressure may benefit from nutrition counseling. Students who struggle with disordered eating may also benefit from nutritional counseling.Medical Nutrition Therapy
Referral Services: Because of the short-term nature of our services we often make appropriate referrals to mental health professionals in the community. Students whose concerns require long-term services, more intensive services, or specialized services not available at BUCC will be referred to other professionals or agencies in the community.
