Let's Talk

Let's Talk provides free, brief, counseling consultations. No topics are off limits and can remain anonymous.  Consults are drop-in and first-come, first-serve. 

Let's Talk is not a substitute for formal counseling, but the Let's Talk counselor will listen to your specific problem and discuss options with you.  Common concerns include: stress, relationships, academic performance, financial struggles, sadness, worry, family problems, and how to help a friend or family member. If you have questions, we encourage you to discuss them with a Let's Talk counselor, contact the Counseling & Testing Center, or read our Frequently Asked Questions page.

What Do I Need To Know? expanding section

Conversations with Let's Talk counselors are confidential; however, one exception is if you are in imminent danger to yourself or someone else. 

You can choose how much identifying information you provide to Let's Talk. Students who prefer to meet anonymously do not need to provide their full name. You will be given the option of providing demographic information, but you can decline to provide additional identifying information.  

Counselors keep confidential, brief notes of Let's Talk conversations. If you are a client (or become a client) at the Counseling & Testing Center (CTC), these notes will become part of your confidential CTC record.
