How to Initiate Counseling

To begin the counseling process come to the Counseling Center, which is located on the second floor of the Guerrieri Student Union, Room 263, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays between 8:00 am and 2:00 pm or on Wednesdays between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm. (These hours are subject to change based on counselor availability.) Upon arriving, you will be asked to complete intake paperwork and will then meet briefly with a counselor. This process typically takes 60 to 90 minutes, however can take longer if there is a wait, so please plan accordingly. To ensure appropriate service, once you complete the paperwork, it must be reviewed by a counselor before you leave the center.

Our Services

We provide out-patient therapy to students through a variety of modalities. Out-patient treatment allows you as a student to receive weekly therapy appointments. You can also meet less often depending on your identified goals or may be seen for additional sessions based on counselor recommendations. If you require more intensive or frequent treatment on an ongoing basis, you will likely be referred to another agency that can provide intensive out-patient or in-patient treatment. To begin counseling services, start by scheduling an intake appointment.
