In order to make an appointment to meet with a counselor, you need to come by the counseling center in person. The Center is located in Palm Cottage (8 Valencia St.) between Wiley Hall and Lewis House. You will be asked for some basic information to determine what type of appointment is best for you. You will then be scheduled for the next available appointment that works with your schedule.
How many sessions?
This really varies. Some students get what they need from one to two sessions. Most typically, students are able to meet their goals in three to 9 sessions.
Appointments are scheduled every other week, but the frequency depends on your needs. You and your counselor will determine how often you need to meet. If it is determined that you need a higher level of care than is able to be offered in the counseling center, your counselor will work to refer you to a community provider to better fit your needs.
If you have a regular an appointment with a counselor and you must miss the appointment, please call or email us in advance. If you do not cancel in advance, you must call or email the Counseling Center at (904) 819-6305 or firstname.lastname@example.org, after your missed appointment in order to be rescheduled.
Please know that we work hard to accommodate the needs of all students on campus and that each appointment is important. Your communication and patience is greatly appreciated.
