Counseling Center Referral Service
Welcome to Towson University Counseling Center's Community Provider database. The Counseling Center provides brief counseling and psychotherapy. For more ongoing difficulties, working with a community provider might be more beneficial in helping you meet your needs and goals. Visit this page if you would like some help deciding what type of services might best fit your needs. On this page, you will also find information about the different mental health specialties (psychologists, psychiatrists, etc.), obtain guidance in choosing a therapist, and acquire some tips for talking to an off-campus therapist about your needs.
If you would rather find private services without coming to the Counseling Center, or if you are not eligible to use the TU Counseling Center, you may use the TU Database of Community Providers. The purpose of this database is to help match your mental health needs with a compatible provider in the community. If you need additional support connecting with a community provider, contact TUCC at 410-704-2512.
This database should not be used in the event of a mental health-related emergency. If you are a TU student and are at risk in any way (e.g., considering suicide or at risk of other physical harm), we urge you to phone the Counseling Center right away and ask for an emergency appointment. If you need help after hours, or if you are not a current TU student, we recommend the following resources:
-Maryland Youth Crisis Hotline (1-800-422-0009)
-Call 911, or go to the nearest hospital emergency department
-Visit our website for more crisis resources.
If you are looking for information on local AA / NA meetings, please visit this page.
The providers participating in the database supply information about their services. We cannot guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or timeliness of the information provided. We are also unable to endorse any provider listed. It will be important to verify information with the provider that most interests you, including fees and other arrangements. Similarly, contact your insurance company to learn more about your mental health benefits and ensure that the clinician you select is a participating provider.
