Individual counseling is FREE to enrolled students and generally focuses on your concerns such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, or relationship concerns.
Length of Counseling
Sessions last about 50 minutes. These meetings are conducted in private and all records are completely confidential and are entirely separate from your academic records.
The goal of counseling is to help you acquire the skills needed to live a more effective life and successfully overcome a difficult challenge. You and your counselor develop strategies to address your goals, and then determine the length of time needed to resolve these concerns. Most students complete between two and eight sessions.
Simultaneous Individual and Group Counseling
Upon completing an intake assessment with a counselor, you may be referred to participate in individual counseling sessions, or, more commonly, to participate in one of our counseling groups. If you participate in a counseling group you will simultaneously meet with your individual counselor to increase effectiveness of both forms of counseling.
At times, the requests for counseling outnumber our staff resources. If you come during one of these high demand periods and further counseling is appropriate, you might be placed on a waiting list or referred to another agency.
