Culverhouse Welcomes Embedded Mental Health Therapist Tyler Simmons


Culverhouse would like to welcome Embedded Mental Health Therapist Tyler Simmons. Simmons is a licensed independent clinical social worker with over 16 years of experience ranging from counseling, child welfare, adoptions, forensic mental health and military social work.

He is no stranger to the concept of embedded therapy as he currently serves as a Behavioral Health Officer for the 142d Military Police Brigade within the Alabama Army National Guard. Simmons was instrumental in developing the Behavioral Health Section for this brigade, which involved close to 1,000 soldiers across the state.

He comes from a personal background in business and operated his own private practice for over 10 years. Simmons’ passion is evident in the knowledge, care and dedication he shows toward students. His treatment philosophy involves normalizing holistic wellness as an everyday component to success. According to him, this is only done by recognizing one’s inherent strengths and hidden solutions to the daily challenges we face.

Outside of the professional world, Simmons likes to experience all the challenges of the game of golf.

So, if you are experiencing anxiety, relationship concerns, or just simply having a bad day, it might be worth taking a preventive step toward increasing your wellness and success. Appointments for his services can be made by contacting the main UA counseling center at 205-348-3863 or by utilizing a walk-in time. These times are Mondays 10:00 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Thursdays from 1- 3:00 p.m. His office is in the Student Services area within Bidgood Hall.

Stop by sometime and take a step toward true success this semester!
