Our Location

501 Park Avenue, directly next to Health Services.

Hours of Operation

Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. when school is in session. We are open for limited hours during school holidays and vacations, and are closed during summer break.

Scope of Services

Services are short-term, and students are able to utilize 6 therapy sessions per semester. For those students looking for a more long-term relationship with a counselor, we can assist in the facilitation of an off-campus referral.  We operate from a student-centered perspective, in which the student takes an active role in their treatment. Our therapeutic services are primarily strength-based and solution focused, with emphasis on behavior based problem solving.

Some students experience needs outside the scope of our services, for example: conditions requiring close coordination with psychiatrists or other providers; conditions with persistent symptoms of risk to personal safety; and conditions requiring access to therapists outside of normal business hours. These students are encouraged to consult with us for an assessment of their symptoms (diagnostic evaluation), and assistance with a referral to community mental health providers.

Our Staff

We are staffed by mental health professionals and psychologists, as well as doctoral level interns.
