About Texas A&M Telebehavioral Care

What is Telebehavioral Care? 

Telebehavioral care, also known as telehealth counseling, is the use of videoconferencing technology to deliver health care services from a distance. Our research shows that clients who receive counseling services through telehealth experience symptom improvements in as few as four sessions.

Counselors help patients achieve their health goals by addressing conditions such as anxiety, depression, grief, relationship problems, suicidal thoughts, trauma and many other mental health concerns.

Distance, lack of transportation, cost and a lack of providers are all barriers to health care that Telebehavioral Care helps alleviate.

Texas A&M Telebehavioral Care (TBC) is a nonprofit psychological service, research and training clinic operated by the Department of Educational Psychology and the Department of Psychiatry at Texas A&M University.

Our services are provided by a team of doctoral-level trainees and licensed psychologist supervisors.

What counseling services do we offer?

Individual Counseling for Adults

Individual Counseling for Adults is our most frequently used service. Adult clients are matched with one of our counselors for weekly appointments. Counseling sessions are usually 45 minutes in duration. TCC counselors help clients cope with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, grief, traumatic events, suicidal thoughts, and other mental health concerns.

Individual Counseling for Teenagers

Individual Counseling for Adolescents is available for adolescents aged 13 and older who are struggling with emotional, behavioral and adjustment-related concerns. Counselors treating younger clients will usually include parents or other caregivers in the treatment process to achieve the best outcomes for each family.

Couples Counseling

Couples counseling is available for married or unmarried partners who want to address relationship issues including communication, conflict resolution, grief, family planning, or other concerns.
