The Baylor Counseling Center is equipped to provide assistance for the emergent concerns of our students. We provide a continuum of care for students by staff clinicians (psychologists, licensed social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, and licensed professional counselors) who work towards delivering the best services that will address your concerns.

The following services are provided via Tele Behavioral Health currently. Other services may resume in the fall following CDC guidelines. Will keep services updated on BUCC website. Please call if you have any questions. Continuum of Care

Consultation Services: We provide consultation services that can help you with strategies for aiding a student to connect with the Counseling Center. We provide these services with those concerned about a student. We are open to speaking to parents, friends, staff and faculty about a range of issues, including: Strategies for helping a student connect with the Counseling Center or another on-campus support; concerns about a particular student who might be experiencing emotional distress or struggling with mental health struggles; concerns about the impact of an individual’s distressing behaviors on others or referrals to other community mental health providers and services

Individual Therapy: We often see students at the Counseling Center on an individual basis to address a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship problems, academic problems, coping with loss, and eating disorders to name a few. The clinician will initially assess your concerns and collaborate with you on a treatment plan for short term therapy, and usually meet with you on are regular basis for 45-50 minutes.

Couples Therapy: Students are eligible for couples counseling provided that at least one person in the couple is a Baylor student (has paid the student services fee). In couples counseling you are taught to deal more effectively with conflict, family issues, adjusting to marriage and other concerns that can enrich the quality of your relationship.

Other Services:

Trauma Recovery Services: We have a treatment team of professional clinicians trained specifically in trauma recovery. We provide confidential
services that are safe and supportive to help the trauma survivor as they sort through their options and begin healing.

Addictive Behavior Services: Staff can meet with you individually for various types of addictive behavior concerns: substance abuse, pornography, gaming, and gambling to name a few. In addition, we provide groups to support both men and women dealing with these concerns.

Dietitian Services: Regina Mastin, a licensed and registered dietitian, provides medical nutrition therapy for students. If you have a nutrition related diagnosis such as diabetes, hypoglycemia, anemia, gastrointestinal disorders, high cholesterol or high blood pressure, food allergies, as well as struggling with disordered eating, you may benefit from nutritional counseling as well. Nutrition counseling includes an assessment of current nutritional status, evaluation of current dietary intake, need for dietary modifications and education on appropriate diet.
