Office hours are 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The psychologist is on call after hours for emergencies. Consultations or referrals that can wait until the next business day probably should, but if you are unsure about whether or not an emergency exists, please consult someone. The psychologist can be paged through Campus Police at 903.813.2555.
The Counseling Center generally operates on an appointment basis. Students wanting an appointment should call Adams Center at 903.813.2247 or stop by to make an appointment. Appointments are usually available within 48 hours. After the first appointment, the psychologist and student collaborate to determine the best course of action.
Students in crisis will always be given priority, with all service users informed that their appointment may be rescheduled should a psychological emergency arise.
The psychologist is available to consult with faculty members about concerns they may have in dealing with a particular student or with their approach to students in general. This may be done over the phone or by appointment.
