Health and Counseling

Counseling Services

We offer short-term, solution-focused, on-campus mental health treatment including the following services:

  • intake and evaluation
  • individual and group counseling (see GROUPS schedule below)
  • psycho-pharmacological evaluation and medication management (after referral from a counselor)
  • crisis intervention services
  • referral to off-campus clinicians for specialized and/or intensive treatment
  • outreach and consultation
  • psycho-educational programming

All students are eligible for an initial consultation with a Counseling Services therapist, and based upon that conversation the clinician and student will work together to find a course of action that best suits the student's needs. Options include but are not limited to short-term individual counseling on campus, joining a themed group (such as stress management or educational coping skills), or participating in a group that focuses on your experiences relating to others.

For needs outside our scope of practice, or that may benefit from longer-term therapy, you may be referred to an off-campus partner.

We are staffed by four licensed mental health clinicians and a part-time psychiatric nurse practitioner.
