Individual Therapy

What is individual therapy?

  • A safe, accepting, and non-judgmental place to confidentially explore issues of personal concern, make decisions, learn about yourself, gain new life skills, and get support from a trained mental health professional.
  • Sessions are 50 minutes long and confidential.

Who is eligible for individual therapy?

  • Currently enrolled students are eligible for an initial intake assessment.
  • CAPS reserves the right to determine if we have adequate resources and expertise to address your particular treatment needs. If your needs cannot adequately or ethically be met by CAPS, we will work collaboratively with you to secure an appropriate referral.

What is the cost for services?

  • Fees for services are already included in students’ previously paid fees. No additional charges are incurred for therapy services.

How do I begin individual therapy?

  • Call or stop by the TWU Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) location closest to you to schedule an intake appointment.
  • Arrive 30 minutes prior to your intake appointment to complete paperwork.
  • In the 30-minute intake appointment you and a therapist will begin to explore the nature of your concerns and goals.
  • Based on the outcome of this initial assessment, CAPS staff will make a treatment recommendation which may include individual, couples, or group therapy or referral to another campus or community agency.
  • If individual therapy is clinically indicated, the recommended frequency and duration of treatment will be determined on a case by case basis with regard to your unique presenting concerns.
  • When appropriate, ongoing individual therapy sessions are scheduled by appointment at the conclusion of the intake appointment.
  • During peak service times, you may be placed on a waitlist for services. Referrals and options for accessing crisis services will also be provided.
