Counseling is free, confidential, convenient, and effective.

Appointments

Counseling begins with an Initial Assessment.

You should allow an hour for your Initial Assessment.  Once you arrive at the Counseling Center, you will provide written information about yourself and your concerns and will the meet with a counselor for about 30 minutes. You and your counselor will explore your concerns and discuss what additional services may be helpful to you.
