This is a one-on-one, approximately 50-minute session with a counselor to ask questions, to discuss a specific issue/problem, or to simply have someone listen.
This is a session(s) in which two people in a relationship discuss issues for them as a couple, as roommates, or as friends.
A group would consist of two or more students, who voluntarily want to share thoughts and feelings in a group setting. The participating students would have the same issue in common. The informal discussions would be facilitated by a counselor, and discussions would be confidential.
All client appointments, personal information and files are strictly confidential. Information you supply cannot be shared with others without your prior written consent. However under the below circumstances your counselor may be required by law to release information:
- To protect you or yourself from imminent serious harm.
- If there is a suspicion of child or elder abuse or neglect.
- If records are ordered to be sent for court purposes.
