The Student Counseling Center provides couples counseling on a space available basis to couples where at least one partner is a service-eligible UT student. Couples may be opposite or same sex, and at any stage of a relationship (from just dating to long-term committed).
If you are seeking couples counseling, both partners will need to complete initial informational forms at the SCC and attend the initial couples screening. In your first meeting with the therapist, you will describe your concerns and work with the therapist to identify 1 to 2 goals for your therapy experience. Couples sessions typically last 45 minutes, meet once per week, and take place with both members of the couple in the room. There may be times when each partner might meet individually with the therapist, especially at the start of the therapy experience.
