In individual counseling, students work with a therapist to explore their concerns and work to better understand and resolve their difficulties.
If you are referred from the Brief Assessment to individual counseling, here’s what to expect: In your first meeting with your therapist, you will have a chance to describe your concerns and the two of you will establish one or two goals for therapy work. It is important that you approach therapy with a “work” frame of reference, as change is a process that takes active involvement from you! Individual sessions typically last 45 minutes and may start weekly or every other week, and then be less frequent as you are improving.
In order to serve the greatest number of students, we are not able to offer long-term therapy services at SCC; most of our students get their needs met in just a few sessions. We will be happy to meet with you for a referral consultation session if you feel you need long-term services.
Note: Group sessions are unlimited! Please see the group page.
