Counseling Services

Students may schedule a first appointment, called an Initial Consultation, to meet with a counselor to discuss their concerns and to develop an initial plan for addressing them. This appointment is scheduled for at least 45 minutes, and follow-up appointments may be scheduled as necessary. During this session a counselor will assess the student’s functioning and reasons for seeking services are evaluated. The goal of the Initial Consultation is to determine the nature and impact of the presenting concerns and discuss options for addressing these concerns.  If counseling is appropriate, the intake counselor will recommend the most effective method of treatment. In some cases, the intake appointment is sufficient in helping students address their concerns.  When a student’s presenting issues require on-going longer-term care or specialized treatment that is not provided in the Counseling Center, we utilize other resources to provide a connection to an off-campus community provider coordinated by our Director of Counseling Services.

If you would like an appointment for an Initial Consultation, please come by our office on the third floor of the Student Success Center between 8:00 am and 5:30 pm, Monday through Thursday and between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm on Fridays. Summer Friday hours end at 12:00 pm. If you are a new client or a returning client who has not been seen in the last six months, you will need to complete the initial information forms once again. We recommend planning ahead by coming in to see a counselor before your situation becomes an emergency. If you are experiencing a crisis that requires immediate attention please visit our page for Students in Crisis. All appointments are confidential and walk-ins are welcome.
