PERSONAL COUNSELING or ACADEMIC SKILL BUILDING
There is no fee for Personal Counseling or Academic Skill Building appointments. To get started, call or stop in to make an appointment (first appointment is 20-30 minutes for personal counseling or 45-50 minutes for academic skill building).
Once you make your first appointment of the school year, we ask that you:
These forms will help your counselor understand your concerns and help you understand the counseling process.
You can download and complete the above forms at home and bring them to your appointment, or come 15-20 minutes prior to your appointment and we will have the forms available for you to complete in our office before you see the counselor. It is important to fullly read the Informed Consent Form. If you have any questions or concerns about the Informed Consent Form, your counselor will discuss this with you before proceeding with this session.
You and your counselor will then discuss your situation and determine what counseling service(s) will be most helpful. If you want to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please do so at least 24 hours before your appointment. Continued services include individual and group options.
