COUNSELING SUPPORT DURING COVID-19
Counseling Center staff have been working on adapting our services so that we may continue offering support and guidance as we all navigate this challenging and unusual time. To protect the health and safety of students and staff, we are providing primarily tele-mental health distance counseling. In person counseling is available for students during crisis and in consultation with the clinical counselor.
HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR COUNSELING SERVICES?
You can do one of three things:
Call the Counseling Center, 607.844.6577, to schedule an initial 30-minute phone consultation. Please leave a voicemail with your name and number and we will return your call within 24 hours.
Visit Health Services, Room 118A. If a clinical counselor is available, you may be seen for a consultation right away. If not, you can schedule a 30-minute phone consultation with front desk staff to see a clinical counselor.
Phone consultations, intake and counseling sessions are available by appointment during normal business hours, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
THE HEALTH AND WELLNESS CENTER
The Health and Wellness Center is located in room 118A and is available during campus hours for student use. The College Nurse, Angeline McComb, RN, and the Health Services Manager, Sayre Paradiso, can be reached here for first aid, over-the-counter medications, COVID-19 rapid tests, birth control, or just a couple of friendly faces!
