The King’s University (TKU) is excited to announce online counseling services provided to our students. TKU’s Marriage and Family Therapy (MMFT) program has teamed up with the Office of Campus Life to provide these services online at no cost to our students through the end of the 2020 summer semester. “As we have become more familiar with Zoom (video conferencing platform), we’ve realized it has given us a resource to provide counseling services not only for our on-ground students, but for our online community within the state of Texas,” says Julie Cole, Director of Campus Life. “This quarantine time has given us the ability to work more diligently to provide a counseling center for our students.”
As a result, effective immediately, TKU students in Texas will be able to receive these counseling services at no cost. During the past few years, the Office of Campus Life has directed students in need of counseling to three affordable area counseling centers, but now we are excited to provide these services through our MMFT interns. Best of all, these services will be completely free to TKU students through the end of the summer semester, at which point there will be a small fee per counseling session.
“One of the things we hear loud and clear every year from our students is that they love that we’re able to provide counseling services to them,” says Cole. “We want our students to be healthy in their bodies, minds, and spirits.”
