Our counseling team, centrally located in the Allen Health and Wellness Center, is composed of three full-time licensed clinicians and an annual rotation of clinical interns — all available for drop-in sessions, milieu support, and short-term counseling. We appreciate that a cornerstone of effective counseling is meaningful rapport and trust, as such every new student meets with a member of the counseling team during their first trimester on campus. These initial meetings provide an opportunity to start to build that essential connection, while also ensuring that all students know that we are a ready resource and how they can access us. In addition to our direct work with students, we welcome the chance to partner with families and, when endorsed, collaborate with a student’s existing outside providers in order to complement any longer term work taking place outside of school. In an effort to help students access their academic day with minimal disruption, we are also happy to partner with families to help coordinate the logistics of accessing telehealth sessions during the academic day, and offer referrals when appropriate.
