    Upon arrival, you will provide basic information and meet with a counselor for approximately 15 minutes to decide how the Counseling Center can best meet your needs.  Various services may be recommended and scheduled including brief individual, or group therapy, or on-line resources. Or you may be referred to a more appropriate campus or community resource.
