A Note About 'Brief Therapy'In order to maximize our resources and meet as many of our students’ mental health needs as we can, Counseling Services operates from a ‘Brief Treatment’ model. Brief treatment may look different for different people, with some students reaching their goals with a single session, some within a few (3 - 5) sessions, and some students engaging in slightly longer courses of therapy. If, at the initial appointment, or thereafter in therapy, your counselor determines that more open ended treatment would be the best fit for you, you may be provided with referrals to community providers who can better meet your needs. Assistance is provided, as requested or needed, to effectively connect with these referral resources.
