Students seek individual counseling for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to:
- Relationship concerns
- Chronic mental health issues
- Grief and loss
Students who schedule an intake session with Counseling Services will meet individually with a staff therapist to determine the services which will best suit their needs.
Counseling sessions may be spaced out across the academic year or once per week for as long as the support is needed. We work closely with students with chronic, long-term or in-depth psychotherapy needs. We will also facilitate referrals to practitioners in the community when it is appropriate and/or upon request.
Couples counseling is also offered. At least one partner must be a full time registered SMCM student. Similar to individual counseling, relationship counseling also follows our short-term approach. If the couple requires on-going or longer term treatment, we will facilitate referrals to practitioners in the community.
