Your initial appointment is an opportunity to talk about your concerns and to learn more about the services we offer. We offer short term therapy within a coordinated care model. This model focuses on getting you connected with the right type of support. We will work with you on a personalized plan, and this may include connecting with other resources on or off campus. Our team is trained to work with all kinds of problems and concerns. Let us help you be successful in your personal life and at school.
