Health and Counseling

Counseling Services

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

  • intake and evaluation
  • workshops and group counseling (see GROUPS schedule below)
  • limited short-term individual counseling as appropriate and determined during intake visit
  • psycho-pharmacological evaluation and medication management (after referral from a counselor)
  • crisis intervention services
  • referral to off-campus clinicians for specialized and/or long term/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 skill-building workshops, themed based groups (such as stress management, building healthy relationships, time management), and limited short-term individual counseling on campus.

For needs outside our scope of practice, or if you 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.

Intake Appointments and Walk-In Hours

During the Fall and Spring semesters, brief appointments for students new to the counseling center are available on a first-come, first-served basis Monday through Friday 9am-4pm.

  • Students who are not interested in on-going counseling but would like the perspective of a counselor
  • Students who have a specific problem and would like someone with whom they could talk
  • Students who have a concern about a friend and would like some perspective on what to do
