First Step

  • The Student Counseling Center follows a Collaborative Stepped Care model which offers a wide range of services to meet your wellness and mental health needs.  During your initial visit,  you will meet with a counselor, who will use their clinical training to work with you to identify the best next step, which may include wellness activities, online services, group counseling, single session problem solving, and/or identifying a need for intensive services.  Treatment is based on each student's unique needs.
  • Individual sessions typically last about 50 minutes and may be scheduled once a week, every other week or monthly.
