Acacia Counseling and Wellness

Acacia Counseling and Wellness1

Founded in 2014 by Dr. Keith Higginbotham and Dr. Brett Donnelly

Acacia began in response to a great need for outpatient mental health services in university communities. Dr. Brett and Dr. Keith worked previously in college counseling centers and, as a result of intense demand quickly became aware of several barriers to obtaining long-term mental health care.

Many students were only able to see a therapist for a limited number of sessions or on a very inconsistent basis, sometimes as infrequent as once every three weeks. Many also experienced long wait times to see a therapist or psychiatrist, often 6 weeks or more. As a result, a greater number of students were being referred to the community for both psychotherapy and psychiatry through their student health insurance.
