Counseling sessions are now in person in the Counseling Center. If you prefer virtual counseling, please access Virtual Care.

It is important for students to understand that phone and email communications are NOT secure and there is some risk of breach of privacy beyond our control. Counselors will do their part talking in private spaces. Student clients are asked to do the same as much as possible, and to discourage having third parties present unless counselor and client have a prior agreement to include the third party.
