What to Expect

Prior to scheduling an appointment with us, you will have a brief pre-screening meeting (in person or on the phone) with a counselor to discuss your needs.

Pre-Screenings are offered:
Monday – Friday
10:00 AM– 3:00 PM

  • You’ll be asked to complete some forms and sign our welcome letter electronically which will take approximately 15 minutes. 
  • You will then speak briefly (15-20 minutes) via phone or in person with a counselor to talk about your reasons for coming in and to explore the options available to you.  
  • Options could include short-term individual or group therapy at the Counseling Center or in the community. We may also provide you with a referral for medication, longer-term off campus counseling, academic advising, career counseling or any other helpful services.

* Please note that at busier times waits can exceed an hour. Please plan accordingly.
