About Us

Service Modality Offerings

The Counseling Center provides essential mental health services to students via in-person sessions as well as offering TeleHealth.

Mental health services are being provided via secure video conference in addition to offering in-person sessions.
 Due to the fact that we offer the flexibility and the option of telemental health services, all clients (including students who have previously been seen at the Counseling Center) will be required to electronically consent to engaging in telemental health services by completing the online consent form at this link. If you have any questions about this process, please contact us at (813) 974-2831.

If you wish to initiate services, please complete the online forms and then call us for appointment information and availability. You will  complete initial paperwork online and call our office to obtain an appointment for a secure confidential meeting with a mental health provider. 

Students can request to reserve a confidential space for their appointment. The USF Counseling Center offers confidential spaces within the the Counseling Center, the FIT, the WELL, and CAMLS. Confidential spaces within SVC may be available on a walk-in basis, but it is a first come, first serve basis so we highly encourage you to call to reserve the space in advance. Spaces within the FIT, WELL, and CAMLS must be reserved one-business day in advance. All spaces are sanitized prior to your arrival.

Face coverings are required within the Counseling Center, Student Health Services, and other USF Health Clinics. Though some of the mitigation guidance has changed based on our evolving understanding of the virus, its transmission, vaccination effectiveness, etc., all members of and visitors to the university community on any campus should continue to follow any posted signs and placards relating to COVID-19 mitigation. Read more about this here.

The Counseling Center is also providing online workshops to assist students with addressing their mental health and wellness concerns. No prior contact with the Counseling Center is required to attend these drop-in sessions just go online at the appointed time! They cover topics as varied as ways to cope with difficult emotions, to how to practice mindfulness to build resilience and increase joy. More information on these sessions can be found here.
We hope you join us!
