Located on the third floor of Hardesty Hall, the Counseling and Psychological Services Center offers clinical services to all students and a broad range of professional, educational and consultative services to faculty and staff. We are trained to help college students adjust to the changes and transitions of college life as well as to help faculty and staff function more effectively in their roles. The staff is devoted to helping with any concerns that might require psychological assistance.
The staff at the counseling center are dedicated to supporting and fostering social and emotional growth for the TU campus community. The guiding principle and primary value at the core of all of the programming and efforts put forth from the counseling center staff can be distilled down to “wholeheartedness”:
Wholeheartedness is about integration. Integrating our thinking, feeling, and behavior. It is putting down the armor and bringing forth all of the scraggly, misshapen pieces of our history and folding in all of the different roles that, when falsely separated, keep us feeling exhausted and torn, to make a complex, messy, awesome, whole person. – Brene Brown, Dare To Lead
All clinical contacts at the counseling center are strictly confidential as protected by law and professional ethics.
Starting January of 2020, we are offering walk-in hours from 10:00am – 3:00pm Tuesdays and Wednesdays. These hours are open to any student for initial or ongoing consultations. During these brief appointments, a clinician will meet with you to assess needs, provide solution focused care, and make a personalized recommendation for appropriate services.
Contact the staff of Counseling and Psychological Services.

Joining a group of people, you may not know, can sound intimidating at first, but group therapy provides many benefits like a strong support network and sounding board. Learn more here.

Students at TU take care of themselves and take care of one another. CaneCares is a simple online tool for you to communicate any concerns or observations you may want to share about a friend, a neighbor, or your community. CaneCares reports are read by TU staff members trained to assist in many ways. CaneCares provides a convenient way for you to step in and make sure a fellow student gets the help that they may need.
Please note that CaneCares reports are not intended for emergency situations. If you or someone you know needs immediate assistance in real-time, call 911 or contact Campus Security at (918) 631-5555.
