Counseling Center Referral Service

You're struggling and aren't sure where to turn for help. The Counseling Center is here to help you navigate decisions about psychological treatment.

The Counseling Center provides brief counseling and psychotherapy. For more ongoing difficulties, working with a community provider might be better. Visit this page if you would like some help deciding what type of services might best fit for your needs. On this page, you will also find information about the different mental health specialties (psychologists, psychiatrists, etc.), obtain guidance in choosing a therapist, and acquire some tips for talking to an off campus therapist about your needs.

If you would rather find private services without coming to the Counseling Center, or if you are not eligible to use the TU Counseling Center, you may use the TU Database of Community Providers. The purpose of this database is to help match your mental health needs with a compatible provider in the community.


If you are a TU student and are at risk in any way (e.g., considering suicide or at risk of other physical harm), we urge you to phone the Counseling Center right away and ask for an emergency appointment. If you need help after hours, or if you are not a current TU student, we recommend the following resources:

  • National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-TALK)
  • Maryland Youth Crisis Hotline (1-800-422-0009)
  • Call 911, or go to the nearest hospital emergency department
  • Visit our website for more crisis resources.

If you are looking for information on local AA / NA meetings, please visit this page.

The providers participating in the database supply their own information about their services. We cannot guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or timeliness of the information provided. We are also unable to endorse any particular provider that is listed. It will be important to verify information with the provider that most interests you, including fees and other arrangements. Contact your insurance company if you need to ensure that the clinician you select is a participating provider.
