The counseling services are available to students during the academic period (you must be enrolled in school to use the services). On your first visit, you will be asked to fill out paperwork and will visit with a counselor for about 30 minutes. After the initial visit, you can make further appointments with a specific counselor with whom you feel comfortable. Most students feel a little anxious the first time they see a counselor, but once you make that initial appointment, it becomes a lot easier!!!
During certain busy times of the year, there may be a waiting list for counseling services. the receptionist will inform you of any waiting list we may have and your scheduling options. Please know that counseling sessions can not be scheduled for the same day and appointments for the next business day can not be scheduled after 3:00pm. Some services are available until 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday during the Fall and Spring semesters. Counseling services are available during normal business hours throughout the year (including breaks between semesters) except on University designated holidays.
Up to 12 individual sessions per academic year are allowed per individual client and up to 12 couples counseling sessions per academic year are allowed per couple. There are no limits on group therapy sessions.
