Distance Counseling


Traditionally, students come to expect face-to-face counseling within an office setting. Yet, students who are taking the majority of their classes on-line or find conventional business hours difficult due to work or family, distance counseling may provide a valuable option. We offer counseling through secure technology-assisted means known as distance counseling. This allows counseling to be provided through the internet, secure email, or landline telephone. Although we prefer to see students face to face to facilitate trust and rapport building, distance counseling can be quite effective for those who are homebound, taking online courses only, or who live a considerable distance from campus. For students who struggle with disclosure concerns, distance counseling may help students talk about difficult issues with a degree of anonymity.

If you are interested in distance counseling, we will discuss confidential ways to speak to a counselor through secure means. You agree to work with the counselor online using ‘Hushmail’ or another encrypted email or chat service determined to be suitable.
