The Assessment & Counseling Clinic (ACC) serves to meet the mental health needs of persons in the university, San Marcos and Hays County communities. Located on the first floor of the Education Building on the Texas State campus (see below), the ACC is a resource for people who are, or may be, in need of counseling. The ACC offers counseling for a variety of concerns to couples, families and individuals ages 3 and older. All fees at the ACC are based on a sliding scale. No individual will be turned away on the basis of payment. Counseling sessions are $20 per hour, and less for those who cannot afford that price. Your fee for counseling will be set by you and your counselor.
Counseling at the ACC is provided by Master's level interns who are pursuing a graduate degree in Counseling. All interns are supervised by professors in the Professional Counseling Program, which is housed within the Dept of Counseling, Leadership, Adult Education & School Psychology
