Your First Appointment
At the first appointment, referred to as an Initial Consultation, students are asked to complete intake paperwork (see sample below). During the initial consultation, the counselor will talk with you to clarify your concerns and determine the options available to you. The options may include a follow-up consultation, a referral to group therapy, meeting with a SCC counselor for short-term therapy, or an off-campus referral. We strive to serve as many students as possible and are not able to provide long-term and comprehensive psychological services. When our staff determine that your needs fall outside of our scope of practice, the counselor will facilitate a referral to mental health services in the community. If it is determined that you could benefit from short-term individual therapy, you will be assigned to a counselor after the initial consultation based on matching availability, therapeutic needs, and when possible client preferences.
You will receive an email the morning of your initial consultation appointment with a link to complete web-based forms prior to your appointment. Below is a copy of the web-based form for your reference only.
