Our Counselors

Our counselors are students in the 60-hour CACREP-approved masters degree counseling program at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV). At the time of providing services, they are necessarily enrolled in Internship I or Internship II—in which they accrue direct counseling experience in schools, in the UTRGV Counseling and Assessment Clinic, or in external agency venues.

Our student counselors cannot practice independently, nor can they receive compensation for their services. However, they have completed most of their coursework by the time they enroll in their field courses. Thus, they are familiar with the major theories and interventions used in contemporary counseling, and have practiced a variety of counseling methods.

They must maintain their own liability insurance coverage, and they have been cleared by criminal background checks.
