A Central Texas university is working hard to give back to the community.  

Texas A&M Central Texas is offering individual and family counseling to those who may not otherwise be able to afford it.  

Through the Community Counseling and Family Therapy Center located on the A&M Central Texas campus, people can get the help they need from professionals and students about to enter the workforce as fully licensed counselors.  

Some people can see a counselor for as little as $5 a session because the cost is based on income. The university said it’s all part of giving back to the community.  

"That’s the mission of the clinic. How do we train counselors and how do we train individuals who are aspiring to become licensed professional counselors and how do we serve the community at the same time.” said Dr. Caroline Austin Norris, director of the Community Counseling and Family Therapy Center.  

With a large number of their students being veterans, the clinic University said they are able to provide help to veterans with someone that understands what they have been through.   

They said it’s a large benefit many veterans can’t afford.
