1. Consultation meeting
If you would like to talk with an on-campus mental health professional please schedule a consultation meeting. This is great option if you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed, need someone to talk with, and haven’t received services through the Counseling Center before. This is not a traditional counseling session but at your consultation meeting our staff can help you determine if a counseling appointment could be beneficial for you. Anyone can schedule a consultation meeting no matter where you are located—in the United States or internationally.
You can make an appointment for a consultation meeting during our "virtual walk-in" hours: Monday–Thursday, 11 a.m.–1 p.m.
