Scope of Our Clinical Services

The Counseling Center invites students seeking counseling to complete and online Intake Form for an initial consultation appointment to discuss their concerns. This conversation between the counselor and the student generally involves a discussion of the student’s current difficulties, a review of treatment options, and recommendations to assist the student in obtaining the appropriate services. Recommendations may include receiving services at the Counseling Center (individual or couple’s therapy), connection to other campus resources, or a referral to community resources when appropriate. Students who would like to speak with a counselor regarding a concern, but are not considering therapy at the Counseling Center for themselves, may schedule an information/referral session with a counselor as a “Consultation.”
