About the Clinic
The Counseling and Career Development Clinic is a training and research clinic staffed by master’s level graduate student counselors who work under the direct supervision of Counseling and Career Development faculty and/or licensed mental health professionals. The clinic provides outpatient counseling services, including career counseling, which take place in rooms 16, 16A, 17, 17A, and 18 in the Education Building.
This is not a crisis or emergency services clinic. If you experience a crisis or emergency, please contact the Police Department or the emergency room for emergency services.
The clinic is free and open to the public; all sessions are confidential. Weekly sessions are available, and there are no session limits applied to clinic visits.
Free of charge
Topics for counseling might include, but are not limited to:
- Career concerns
- Academic concerns
- Loss, adjustment, transition
- Stress and time management
- Handling anger, guilt, and other emotions
If you have a concern in one of these areas or in a related area, we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity.
You will be contacted by your counselor to set up a day and time for the duration of the semester. Your counselor will meet with you at least once a week for 50 minutes.
We are not set up to handle crisis situations. Your counselor is only available to you on the day and time of your scheduled session.
We cannot guarantee services or the same counselor for the following semester.
Confidentiality is important to us. With few exceptions, information about you will be strictly confidential and will be released only when you have given your written permission. Exceptions to strict confidentiality will be discussed when you meet with your counselor.
In each counseling room, there is a small video camera used for supervision and recordings. The sessions are recorded and deleted at the end of the semester. The recorded sessions are used for supervision purposes.
