Most students have concerns when they are contemplating meeting with a counselor. These issues can be deeply personal and sometimes difficult to talk about. Rest assured that your discussions with W&J counselors are:
First Session - Counseling begins with a 50-minute initial appointment. During this time, you and the counselor will explore the your current concerns and needs and determine how SCS can help. Following the initial appointment, the counselor will suggest options to help you choose a plan that will best address your concerns.
On-Going Services - After the initial appointment, you may choose to continue to work with a campus counselor or may be referred to other treatment or resources that can best help you with the issue.
And Beyond - If the we agree the best plan is on-campus sessions, you may meet with the counselor regularly for up to 12 sessions per academic year.
