Your First Appointment 

During your first appointment, you’ll meet with a counselor and collaborate to figure out how the center can best meet your needs. We offer:

• Individual sessions

• Group sessions          

• Medication consultation with psychiatrists

• Crisis management

• Referrals to off-campus resources

 

Confidentiality  

Many students are concerned about the privacy of their visits to the counseling center. Visits to the counseling center are confidential. The content of sessions is discussed with no one. Counseling center records do not become part of a student’s university record. With rare exceptions, which your counselor will discuss with you, records can only be released with your written permission.

 

Can I have counseling even if I’m not in a crisis right now? 

Absolutely! Counseling can be beneficial even if you don’t have anything out of the ordinary going on.  If you’re interested in achieving greater insight into your emotions and your relational patterns, and beginning to address any issues resulting from them, the counseling center is here for you.
