Counseling and Family Therapy Clinic
The Counseling and Family Therapy Clinic (CFTC), housed within the Department of Human Development, Family Studies, and Counseling, is open to the public and provides counseling for families, couples, groups, and individuals, both adults and children.
All therapists and counselors are supervised by a clinical director and clinical faculty who have earned doctoral degrees and maintain licensure in a mental health discipline.
Our primary mission is to join with individuals, partners in relationships, and families to create solutions to problems they face. We provide trauma-informed care and pride ourselves on creating an atmosphere of dignity and safety.
We provide culturally competent services to individuals of diverse ages, races, sexual orientations, genders, religions, nationalities, immigration statuses, socioeconomic statuses, abilities, and backgrounds.
If for any reason, an individual believes they have been discriminated against, treated unfairly, or treated unjustly, they can report their concerns to the clinic director. The clinic director and clinic managers are available to answer questions and work through client concerns. The faculty associated with the Clinic are licensed professional counselors (LPC) or licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT).
All services and records are handled with strict confidentiality to protect all of our clients. Reports or information will be released only after the clinic director, or a clinic manager, obtains written permission from each adult client involved in the counseling process, in accordance with Texas law.
Limits to confidentiality include:
- Disclosure of child abuse and/or neglect
- Disclosure of elderly abuse and/or neglect
- If we are subpoenaed by a court
- Disclosure of abuse from a mental health care professional
- If you disclose that you are a danger to yourself or others (i.e., suicidal ideation or homicidal ideation)
