Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

Personal Counseling/Psychotherapy

A student can meet with a counselor for personal, emotional, behavioral or relationship problems. Students can receive support for difficulties adjusting to college, juggling obligations, alleviating problems and/or learning to cope adaptively.  The goal of counseling is to help you resolve concerns and reach your goals in the pursuit of a more satisfying, fulfilling life.  Counseling sessions are made by appointment.

eligibility for caps services

Currently enrolled UTA undergraduate and graduate students are eligible for services. Distance education/online students who do not attend on-campus classes are not eligible to use UTA Health Services, including CAPS services.

Fees - individual and group counseling

Students are eligible for 6 free individual counseling sessions each semester (to include the initial consultation session). There is a $10.00 fee per visit for session 7 and any additional sessions during the current semester. Missed or late cancelled sessions will count toward the 6 session limit. All group counseling is free of charge.

Professional Approaches

Each counselor has his or her own counseling approach and style. Just as no two people are alike, no two providers are alike. Each provider has a style or approach that is unique. However, for all staff the goal of counseling is to help you resolve the issue(s) that brought you in. In addition, all staff maintain the highest ethical standards and practice. The exact type of assistance you receive will be based on collaboration between your counselor and yourself. Some issues may require treatment and/or monitoring that is beyond the scope of what our office can accommodate. In these cases, referrals to appropriate services will be provided.

Career Counseling

Career selection and planning is a lifelong process that involves developing self-awareness and understanding the realities of the working world. Counselors are available to help students with this process by appointment.

Career Assessments and Career Resources are often recommended to assist students in gaining awareness and understanding of their interests, personality and values. Career Assessments including the Strong Interest Inventory and the Myers Briggs Type Indicator can help with this process.

My Plan, a comprehensive web-based career planning program, is available in The Career Development Center located in 216 Davis Hall. For assistance with My Plan, job search skills, resume writing, interviewing skills and job market information, visit The Career Development Center.
