Counseling Services

The college experience will be emotionally challenging at times. Counseling Services compassionately provides free, accessible, and confidential assistance to all enrolled Trinity students.

We have designed our services to fulfill our mission: To support the educational and personal success of Trinity University students when they encounter developmental, interpersonal, or psychological challenges. Whether those challenges are homesickness, coping with a break-up, anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues, Counseling Services is eager to collaborate with a student in need.

How a Student Can See a Counselor

We offer two options for obtaining an Initial Consultation with one of our counselors:

  • By appointment. Call 210-999-7411 or visit the office at 201 Halsell Center to schedule an appointment.
  • During Walk-In Hours on a first-come, first-seen basis Monday through Friday between 3 pm and 4:30 pm during fall and spring semesters.

Profiles of our counselors and their specialties are available on the ‘Meet the Staff’ webpage. If a student wishes to see a specific counselor, the Initial Consultation should be by appointment.

What We Offer Concerned Parents and Others

A person who is concerned about a student may consult with a counselor for guidance. During a consultation, the counselor cannot confirm or deny that the student is one of our clients—or share confidential information—unless the student has previously authorized us to do so. A concerned person may benefit from the guidance offered at the ‘If You Are Concerned about a Student’ webpage.
