Appointments are recommended, but crises counseling is available during regular business hours. Appointments are typically 45 minutes to an hour.
Group counseling offers students with similar experiences the opportunity to learn from one another as well as the group leader. A group can serve as a support network for students who feel alone in their present concern.

When extensive treatment warrants, the nurse will aid in coordinating services with a physician.

What to Expect
We are committed to supporting your needs in a safe, non judgmental, and confidential manner.
For your first session at Student Health, Counseling & Wellness, you’ll typically be asked to arrive about 15 minutes before your appointment to fill out some paperwork.
The first appointment is called the intake appointment. The goal of this appointment is to find out your concerns and figure out an effective way to help you.
Next, you and the counselor or nurse will discuss different options to address your problems and help you feel better. You may decide to start treatment at the counseling center, seek medical treatment, participate in group therapy or you may be given a referral to see a provider outside of campus.
If you can’t make your scheduled appointment, be sure to contact the center at least 24 hours beforehand.
