We provide individual, group, and couples counseling, crisis intervention, urgent consultation and referral, medication management referral, consultation, and outreach to students . One individual must be a currently enrolled student in order to receive services as a couple.Services are covered by student fees, and do not require additional payment, with the exception of psychological assessment. We offer assessments for students concerned about learning disabilities and/or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) for a reasonable fee. If you would like more information or have a specific request, please stop by the office or give us a call. Printed materials are available about our services, your rights and responsibilities as a client at the Center, and about various mental health topics.
If you'd like to begin services at the Counseling Center, you can walk in M-F from 8:00am-4:00pm for a brief 30 minute triage (no appointment necessary). Please allow 1-2 hours to spend at the Center, in case there are other students ahead of you. From there, you and your clinician will decide next steps, which may include attending group, scheduling an Initial Assessment, referrals to other on or off campus resources, and/or being added to our waitlist (if applicable). If you have questions about this process, please contact the Counseling Center at 502-852-6585 or stop by the office.
