Brief Individual Counseling

Individual Counseling Overview

Brief individual counseling focuses on short-term treatment goals in order to facilitate adjustment, improve functioning, and address acute symptoms blocking student success. If your initial assessment counselor determines that individual counseling is the best approach to addressing your concerns, you will be scheduled with an individual therapist.

Therapists are available to meet with students for a limited number of sessions, which are between 30 and 45 minutes in length. Together, you and your therapist will review the recommendations made during the initial assessment, set goals, and determine the approximate number of sessions that may be needed. Clinicians will determine whether sessions are weekly or biweekly, based on your needs and concerns.
