Counseling

Call 651-696-6275 to make an appointment confidentially

We offer time-limited counseling, which means that students may be seen for up to 10 sessions per academic year.

There is no charge for this service and can be scheduled on a weekly basis. Sometimes finding the most appropriate help may mean exploring resources other than those provided by the counseling staff. If so, we will offer assistance in referring you to other appropriate services and counseling resources.

Appointments are 45 minutes long and begin on the half hour. If you find that you will not be able to keep an appointment, please call to cancel at least 24 hours in advance so that the time may be used for someone else. Failure to do so may result in forfeiture of your appointment time.

Prior to your first appointment, you will be sent a link to an online intake form. If you have difficulties with the online version, you may print the Counseling Intake Form and bring the completed form to your initial visit. Here are some things you can do to make the most of counseling.

Individual Counseling

We offer ten 45-minute counseling sessions per year at no cost.

In addition to regularly scheduled appointments, drop-in times are available each day on a first-come, first-served basis. Arrive 30 minutes prior to the drop-in time.
