Your Visit

Setting Your Appointment

Counseling Services has an Internet-based appointment scheduler. You can access this scheduler any time from any computer with Internet access by clicking the badge in the top right corner of the Counseling Services pages. When you click on the link, you will see a week's worth of schedules for all the counselors and interns currently on staff.

To make an appointment, click on the counselor's name for the day that you want, and follow the prompts to make your appointment. You will be asked to provide a name, phone number, and e-mail address. Others will not be able to see this information, only the counselor. When you refresh the page, your time will be blocked out with the letter "R" (for Reserved).

You will receive a confirmation e-mail that will serve as your appointment reminder.

Your Visit

CounselingbodyWhen you arrive for your appointment, you can expect to be treated with dignity and respect. Your meeting will be kept confidential unless you give written permission for the counselor to share information with others (such as your doctor or parents).

You'll be asked to fill out a brief intake form and read and sign a "Consent for Services" form on your first visit.

You'll be asked what has happened to bring you to counseling, and from there, you have the floor. The counselor may ask you some questions to clarify what you're saying, and to help you clarify your own thinking. Counseling is a process of problem-solving and self-learning. You may have "homework" between sessions.

Remember that the counselor is there to guide and support you, but YOU are the one who does the real work. You are the one who will work to make changes in your thinking and behavior so that you can reach your maximum potential.

There's a $25 charge for students who do not show for their scheduled appointment unless there's an emergency, serious illness or notice was given.
