  • Texas State University Counseling Center

    • Mission

      The Texas State Counseling Center provides high quality mental health services to promote the overall well-being, retention, and success of our diverse student population. As part of our role in higher education, the Counseling Center also contributes to the advancement of the mental health field through the training of new professionals. Our work is guided by ethics, professional standards, and respect for diversity.


      Maximize student success in college and beyond by providing responsive and effective support, education, and mental health care.

    • The staff of the Texas State Counseling Center are committed to the continued development of awareness and appreciation for individual differences within our diverse university community.  We value diversity among our staff and clients and endeavor to be a positive force on campus as students, staff and faculty explore their own identities and beliefs about diversity.  It is our intention that the Counseling Center be an emotionally safe and respectful environment for members of the Texas State community.  To this end, we strive to provide quality services which are sensitive to diversity of all kinds including age, gender, race, ethnicity, ability, religion, sexual and gender identities and values.

    • The Counseling Center (CC) provides a variety of counseling, consultation, crisis intervention, educational programming/outreach and referral services to the students, faculty and staff of Texas State.  Individual/couples and group counseling services are limited to currently enrolled students.  Initial consultation and crisis sessions are offered by staff daily, on a rotation basis, to respond to student needs.  The CC staff also provide stress management and relaxation training; administer and interpret psychometric instruments; make educational presentations; design and present staff development workshops; consult with faculty, staff and family members regarding student situations; make referrals for services both within and outside the university; and serve on a variety of divisional and university-wide committees.  The CC provides students in need of psychiatric assessment/treatment a referral to the Student Health Center psychiatrist.    

      The CC staff is comprised of eight licensed psychologists, one master's level counselor, two licensed social worker with one social worker serving as case manager/referral specialist, three postdoctoral residents, two doctoral interns, contract counselors, three master's and/or doctoral practicum students, one senior administrative assistant, three administrative assistants, two graduate research assistants, and three part-time student workers.

  • Texas State Internship Training Program

    • As a training facility we strongly embrace the ethical imperatives that guide the identity development of Psychologists, in particular the mandate to be culturally sensitive professionals.

      We strive to create an environment of support and acceptance with our internship training as well as our work with clients, and with each other. Interns can expect that we will honor and respect their uniqueness while at the same time help grow as a therapist and a future psychologist.

    • We think about culture and diversity broadly, allowing our definition to encompass racial and ethnic differences, gender and sexual identity, socioeconomic status, nationality, acculturation, religious affiliation, faith expression, and ability status, as well as the intersectionality of these and other identities. Comprehensive understanding of the impact of culture is seen by our staff as an integral ingredient of competent psychological practice.

      We are therefore deeply committed to developing our own multicultural competencies and those of our interns. We believe that all counseling is multicultural counseling, and being an effective counselor requires being intentional about building healing relationships with clients where attention to issues of diversity is paramount.

    • We ascribe to APA’s position statement “Preparing Professional Psychologists to Serve a Diverse Public: A Core Requirement in Doctoral Education and Training” which can be found at: (See App. E).

      We train interns to be well-rounded professional psychologists with the competencies to serve clients representing different forms of diversity. In providing this training, we commit ourselves to creating a supportive training environment that allows for self-exploration and the development of cognitive flexibility.

      Interns training in our center are expected to develop competencies to effectively serve diverse populations, including clients whose identity, beliefs, worldview, or cultural background may create personal conflict with that of the intern.

      We believe that in working through these conflicts interns will have the opportunity to grow and obtain valuable skills and experiences that will enhance their development as clinicians. Supervision is encouraged as a useful tool to obtain support during challenging diversity related experiences.


    • The overall aim of the Texas State University Counseling Center internship program is to prepare interns to transition from psychologists-in-training to skilled generalists capable of thriving in a variety of outpatient settings and able to attend to the mental health needs of a wide range of individuals. We aim to provide supervised training and experience to advance our interns along their path to become ethical, multiculturally aware, and competent psychologists.

      The Texas State University internship training program includes providing experiences conducive to the training of health service psychologists:

       1)      Demonstrate ability to practice and implement psychotherapy (individual, couple, and group)

       2)      Develop skills in psychological assessment and testing

       3)      Develop skills in entry-level supervision

       4)      Demonstrate crisis intervention and trauma assessment skills

       5)      Develop skills in conducting programs, presentations, and consultations

       6)      Develop multicultural competency and awareness of diversity

       7)      Practice psychology guided by ethical and legal standards

       8)      Promote the development of a positive professional identity

      Training at the Texas State Counseling Center is based on the belief that a competent practitioner in the field of psychology should be guided by knowledge of clinical theory and applied research, awareness of ethical/legal/professional standards of practice, sensitivity to individual differences within a diverse society, and openness to lifelong learning.  We incorporate this philosophy into our training program through the use of a practitioner - apprenticeship training model in which didactic and experiential learning are combined.  This model emphasizes the importance of integrating and applying knowledge and skills (practitioner focus) and continued learning through clinical practice during the internship year (apprenticeship).

      The Texas State internship program considers interns to be apprentices or "psychologists-in-training"; that is, they are believed to have a requisite set of basic skills acquired from their academic training programs and are treated as professionals practicing under extensive supervision and support.  Interns are expected to build upon and refine previously acquired skills and to learn new skills throughout the internship year as they operate with an increasing level of autonomy.  The internship program endeavors to help interns transition from the role of trainee to that of entry-level professional.

      Supervisors and other staff serve as important role models for interns.  Staff interact with interns both formally, through supervision and other training activities, and informally, through an open door policy, which highlights the value we place upon consultation and collaboration.  There is no single theoretical orientation which guides the staff, so interns are not expected to adhere to a specific orientation.  Rather, we strive to provide both challenge and support for interns as they develop their own professional identities.  Supervisors and other staff are in frequent contact with interns and serve not only to facilitate the development of skills and competencies but also to facilitate the development of self-efficacy and professionalism.

      In order to be an effective practitioner, one's practice must be "informed by science".  Interns are initially taught theory and research in their academic training programs.  They continue their education throughout their internship and are taught the importance of becoming lifelong learners.  The practice of psychology is an intensely demanding endeavor which requires one to continue to evolve professionally.  Practitioners must be able to integrate theory and research into their clinical work in meaningful ways.  This includes keeping up with the professional literature on new developments in the field and changing one's practice as indicated.

      All staff and interns have ready access to the Internet and are encouraged to utilize it and university library resources to obtain information about pertinent topics and issues.  Individual and group supervision, as well as Clinical Review (case conference) and Intern Training Seminar, present opportunities for discussion of theory, evidence based treatments, and suggestions for reading.  Staff and interns also utilize knowledge obtained from their own and others' clinical experiences.  Practitioners create hypotheses about clients and then attempt to gather evidence on both a general and local level to support or refute these hypotheses.  Staff share knowledge accumulated over their years of practice with interns through training, supervision, and consultation and interns are encouraged to formulate and evaluate their own clinical hypotheses.

      Interns are treated as members of the professional staff of the CC.  As less experienced professionals, they are provided with the necessary training, supervision, and mentoring to develop personally and professionally.  These are provided through the internship program in the form of didactic seminars, individual and group supervision, experiential learning, and staff modeling and mentoring.  The program strives to enhance the development of generalist skills in the areas of counseling/psychotherapy, assessment, educational programming/outreach and consultation, and supervision.

      In accordance with the Standards of Accreditation In Health Service Psychology, the content and training methods of the Texas State internship program are designed to provide experiences and training to expand the interns' proficiency in the nine APA required competency areas.  These competency areas are:

      • Research
      • Ethical and Legal Standards
      • Individual and Cultural Diversity
      • Professional Values, Attitudes, and Behaviors
      • Communications and Interpersonal Skills
      • Assessment
      • Intervention
      • Supervision
      • Consultation and Interprofessional/Interdisciplinary Skills
      • Educational Outreach*

      *The Texas State internship program values the impact of outreach and prevention and has chosen to provide experiences, training, and supervision in this area of development.

    • Interns will participate in an extensive orientation during their first two weeks at Texas State. The purposes of the orientation program are to provide interns with basic information about CC services, acquaint them with other staff with whom they will be working, and expose them to the required and optional components of the training program. Interns will also attend regularly scheduled orientation sessions for new Texas State and Student Affairs staff (these may not occur within the first two weeks).


      A standard core training program is required of all interns.

      The following is a sample work week which may vary by semester or according to the Center's or intern's needs or preferences:

    • A.  Individual Counseling/Therapy

      Interns see an average of 14 individuals/couples per week.  Most of these students will be seen on a short-term and bi-weekly basis.  Because relationship counseling tends to require more time/sessions than individual counseling, the CC limits the number of couples it works with; couples are often referred to a marriage and family practicum clinic on campus.

      B.  Group Counseling/Therapy

      The Counseling Center offers a variety of topical groups and workshops throughout the year.  Examples of past counseling and support groups offered include groups for adult children of dysfunctional families, sexual abuse/incest survivors, women, first generation students, students experiencing anxiety and panic disorder, LGBTQIA+ students, art therapy, interpersonal process/personal growth, students with bipolar disorder, and students dealing with grief and loss issues.  Interns are required to co-lead a group with a staff member, but are also encouraged to develop and lead groups in their own areas of interest.  Group co-leaders will provide supervision of group work.

      C.  Initial Consultations

      Each intern will be responsible for four to six initial consultation slots each week. Initial consultations are offered on an appointment basis each day and consist of a 30 minute triage interview conducted after a student completes an initial consultation form (demographic data, history of previous treatment and current medication, family information, etc.), symptom checklist, and CCAPS (CC Assessment of Psychological Symptoms).  During this initial session the counselor is expected to assess the nature of the presenting problem(s), determine the need for immediate attention or intervention, and refer the student to the appropriate resource(s) within or outside the CC.

      D.  On-call Coverage

      On-call hours are set aside each day to provide consultation to faculty/staff, families and students and to provide assistance to students in crisis.  Each intern is expected to schedule two hours of on-call coverage per week (spring and summer) during regular working hours.  Backup assistance from a senior staff member will always be available. 

      E.  Practicum Supervision

      The Counseling Center provides practicum experience for master's and doctoral students in Counseling and Clinical Psychology and related fields from a variety of universities.  Each intern is assigned as the primary supervisor for a practicum student during the fall and spring semesters.  Practicum supervision assignments typically change after the first semester to provide the intern with two supervision experiences.

      F.  Psychological Assessment

      Assessment is considered to be an integral part of therapy and each staff member and intern is encouraged to utilize formal assessment techniques when appropriate.  The CC has a variety of instruments which can be used by interns (e.g., MMPI-2-RF, MCMI-III, CPI, WAIS-IV, WJPEB-III, WJ IV,  TAT,  TSI-2, IVA-2, etc.).  Projective testing is available, but not widely used. The CC makes use of computer scoring and narrative reports for some instruments (MMPI-2-RF, MCMI-III, MBTI, WAIS-IV, WJIV, CISS, and SII).

      G.  Educational Programming/Outreach and Consultation

      CC staff are frequently asked to consult with faculty/staff about a specific student or situation, provide staff development programs for other departments, present seminars or workshops for student groups or residence halls (e.g., stress management, sexual assault, multicultural sensitivity, depression, etc.), and provide other outreach services on campus (e.g., make staff available in a residence hall where a student has died).  Career Services and the Student Health Center's Health Promotion Services provide numerous educational workshops/seminars on career and alcohol/drug-related topics, respectively.  Interns will be given the opportunity to gain experience in a number of these activities.

      H.  Core Experiential Components

      Interns are expected to participate in a set of required experiences in each of the following areas:

      1. Substance abuse
      2. Assessment
      3. Career
      4. Diversity
      5. Group therapy
      6. Trauma
      7. Supervision
      8. Educational programming/Outreach: Opportunities for additional optional experiences in these areas are also available to interns.
    • A.  Individual Supervision

      Effective supervision is believed to be the most essential element of a good training program.  Each intern receives two hours per week of regularly scheduled individual supervision from a licensed psychologist.  Additional unscheduled supervision and consultation with the supervisor and other staff members are available and encouraged.  Although individual supervision may focus primarily on an intern's counseling cases, ethics and other professional issues are considered to be valuable topics for discussion.  Individual supervisors will be changed mid-year so that interns will have an opportunity to experience different supervisory styles.

      B.  Diversity Case Consultation/Group Supervision

      Interns will meet together with a staff psychologist for one hour each week to discuss diversity related topics by presenting cases and processing their own identities. Interns will be encouraged to focus on how one's own social identities and experience affect both the personal and professional self, and how diversity issues affect therapeutic process and outcome. The goals are to increase interns' knowledge, awareness, skills, and competency in working effectively with diverse clientele with intersecting identities, to appreciate a multicultural perspective, and to increase their self-awareness.  An emphasis will be placed on discussion and experiential process.

      C.  Specialized Supervision/Training

      Interns have the opportunity to experience a variety of specialized activities.  These experiences will be supervised by CC or other university staff with expertise in the given area/activity.  Examples of specialized supervision/training include supervision of assessment or research activities, training/supervision of career counseling, training in educational programming, etc.

      D. Supervision of Supervision

      This weekly seminar combines a supervision training seminar with group supervision of the interns' practicum supervision experience.  This seminar meets for 1.5 hours each week and focuses on developing supervisory skills.  Topics for the didactic portion of the seminar include supervision models, supervisory roles and process, ethics, cross-cultural supervision, etc.  Supervision of Supervision provides interns a setting in which to share and discuss their experiences as supervisors.

      E.  Clinical Review/Psychiatric Consultation

      Clinical Review and psychiatric consultation meetings provide senior staff members and all trainees an opportunity to present cases and consult with other professionals regarding current cases.  Clinical Review is scheduled for one hour each week and includes a discussion of one or more cases presented by a staff member or trainee.  Input from the group may provide the presenter with alternative case conceptualizations and treatment strategies.  Clinical Review is considered to be a learning experience by all who participate in it. In addition to providing suggestions for the case presenter, it allows participants to experience a variety of theoretical and therapeutic perspectives.  Additionally, a psychiatrist from the Student Health Center visits the CC once or twice a month to consult about mutual cases and discuss medication issues, diagnoses, and other pertinent topics.

      F.  Intern Training Seminar

      The Intern Training Seminar is an educational seminar which provides interns with information about a variety of professional issues and topics of therapeutic relevance.  Seminars generally last two hours and are presented by CC staff, other Texas State faculty and staff, and professionals from the community.  A series of seminars is presented in each of the following areas:  Legal/Ethical/Professional Issues, Diversity, Career Counseling, Trauma, Alcohol and Other Substance Abuse, and Clinical or Special Issues.  Interns will be expected to develop and present a seminar on a topic of their choice during the spring or summer semester.

      G.  Assessment Seminar

      The Assessment Seminar is a weekly seminar, which provides interns training on a variety of assessment instruments and issues.  Seminars are scheduled for 1.5 hours and provide an opportunity for training, administration, report writing, and consultation/supervision.

      H.  Professional Development

      Interns are given five days to engage in activities which will enhance their development as professionals depending on clinical load/additional needs of the CC. Additional time each week may also be utilized with approval. This time may be spent in unscheduled supervision, reading journal articles, working on a dissertation or other research project, attending workshops or staff development programs, interviewing, etc.

    • A.  Staff Meeting

      Staff meeting is held once a week for 1.5 hours.  The purpose of this meeting is threefold: to share information discussed by the Student Affairs Council, to provide an opportunity for input and/or decision-making regarding the operation of the CC, and to discuss any issue which impacts the CC and/or its staff and services.  Occasionally, guests are invited to provide information to the staff.  All staff members, including support staff and interns, attend this meeting.

      B.  Committee/Team Meetings

      Counseling Center interns are considered to be Student Affairs staff members and their ideas and opinions are respected and valued.  Therefore, interns are given the opportunity to serve, usually along with a senior staff member, on one or more divisional programming teams.  Current programming teams include:  Educational Staff Development, Community Staff Development, Assessment and Information Technology.

      Interns may also be asked to serve on CC committees as they arise.  Current committees include an educational programming committee, a training committee, a professional development team, a clinical services team, and a staff relations/community building team.

      C.  Administration/Records Maintenance

      Time is set aside for interns to write case notes, return phone calls, talk to other staff about policies/procedures, etc.

    • A.  Intern Project/Activity

      Interns select a project or activity to complete during the year which will broaden their professional training/experience.  Examples of past intern projects and activities include serving on a Student Affairs programming team, participating in intern or practicum selection, training staff on a particular theory or technique, conducting needs assessment groups, working on a project with another department, etc.

      B.  Continuing Education/Staff Development/Professional Meetings

      The CC tries to provide one to two continuing education programs for staff each semester.  Recent topics for these programs have included returning veterans' issues, undocumented students, substance abuse, motivational interviewing, anger management, couples counseling, group therapy, mindfulness, mental health law, stalking and psychopharmacological updates.  The Division of Student Affairs provides staff development programs during the fall and spring semesters that are available to all Student Affairs staff.  Technology Resources and the Office of Professional Development also provide workshops and seminars which are available to interns.  Interns are encouraged to attend outside workshops, conferences and professional meetings and time is made available for these activities.  The CC provides funding for interns to attend an annual Texas counseling center internship conference in the spring.

      C.  Evaluation and Feedback

      Interns and their supervisors are involved in mutual formal and informal evaluations throughout the year.  They are encouraged to discuss goals for supervision, progress being made toward those goals and areas of supervision needing attention.  Four times a year, supervisors and interns complete a formal written evaluation of each other and the supervisory experience.  (Interns are given a complete description of the evaluation process and procedures at the beginning of the internship year.)  Interns are also asked to evaluate the training program itself.  Information gathered from evaluations is used to assess interns' progress and to make needed changes in the supervision process and/or the internship program.


      Each intern has his/her own office within the Counseling Center and is provided a computer with scheduling, record keeping, networking, e-mail, Internet and word processing capabilities.  Interns also have telephones with long distance service and have access to a fax machine, testing computer and scanner, laptop computers, LCD projectors, several laser printers and a color printer.  Interns are provided with webcams in their offices for recording sessions.  Interns have access to clerical and technical support from administrative assistants, systems support specialists and student workers.  University library holdings and computer services are also available to interns.


      The Psychology Internship Training Program at the Counseling Center at Texas State University does not make use of Distance Education at this time. The use of Electronically Mediated Education generally includes the review of video recordings of clinical sessions, and supplemental learning experiences that may be provided via pre-recorded trainings, Internet-based modules or recordings, and independent or guided searches of professionally related topics using on-line resources. The primary approach to learning is experiential and interactive (e.g., clinical experiences; supervision; seminars; consultations; prevention and outreach).
