The Counseling Resource Center provides assistance and guidance in resolving personal, social, or psychological problems and difficulties through counseling, so that students are better able to achieve their academic goals and reach their full potential. The Center offers confidential assistance with issues such as anxiety, stress, emotional problems, relationships, and alcohol/substance abuse.
Additional services may include:
- Coping Skills
- Crisis Management
- Anger Management
- Support Groups
- Community Referrals
The services offered by the Counseling Resource Center are provided by a non-judgmental, objective, licensed professional who is trained to help with reflection, support, and solutions. Students may have up to four Solution Focused Brief Therapy counseling sessions.
Telemental Health Counseling
Distance counseling, also known as Telemental Health Counseling, is available. This type of counseling allows students to meet with a counselor either by phone or secure online video conferencing. This service was designed for students who may predominantly take online classes or who cannot meet a counselor on either campus location or have other concerns.
While we make an effort to ensure confidentiality, distance counseling may compromise this in some cases. The nature and use of the internet and phone prevent total guarantee of privacy as we may experience from an office visit. We do use a software program that is HIPAA compliant to offer as much confidentiality as possible.
For students who wish to engage in distance counseling, each will read and sign the Informed Consent for Telemental Health Counseling, which will include a student’s contact information and an emergency contact. While some students may find the concept somewhat strange at first, most have positive experiences. To make an appointment, or learn more about the process, contact a counselor directly or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Please download the Informed Consent for Telemental Health Counseling, fill out the form completely and email the form to email@example.com.
