The Counseling Center offers currently enrolled students several different kinds of help, starting with a private and confidential initial meeting with a counselor.
Please keep your appointments.
Due to the high demand on our services, students who no-show appointments will be charged $20.
Questions about this policy may be directed to your therapist or the Counseling Center Director.
Counseling often deals with very personal and sensitive issues. Successful outcome depends on having a safe place to express your feelings, attitudes and thoughts with a therapist who respects you and your privacy.
Counseling sessions are confidential, and any limits to confidentiality are carefully explained. Information may only be released with your written permission or as may be required by law.
The importance of confidentiality is reflected in the Counseling Center’s adherence to the Code of Ethics of the American Psychological Association.
A therapist will help you address your immediate problem(s) by focusing on what you need help with that day.
A therapist will develop a culturally-responsive and tailored treatment plan, so that you can leave each session with clarity, direction, and a plan for meeting your wellness goals and needs.
A therapist will collaborate with you to determine what further sources of help will be most useful.
A therapist will assist you in the referral process (if necessary) to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible.
