What happens when I contact Counseling & Wellness Services for an appointment?

  • An appointment will be made for an initial assessment within a few days of contact or the same day in an urgent situation. The first appointment is an opportunity to discuss your concerns and for the clinician to understand you and your individual needs
  • The decisions about the appropriate treatment are made on an individual basis. Some students participate in counseling for just a few visits while others seek ongoing therapy
  • There are times that a community-based referral may be necessary to maximize your care. The clinician will help make that determination and provide you with necessary information whether it’s for medication or a specialized area within the counseling profession
