 How do I get to talk?

Come up Student Wellness Center and ask to speak with the Let’s Talk counselor. Talks are first-come, first-served so a brief wait is possible and feel free to have a seat.

2

 What will the consultation be like?

The counselor will share about confidentiality and then open it up to your concerns. You can talk about anything, and we will listen, provide support and ideas, help talk through problems, and offer new skills to feel better.​

 Is it therapy?

Let’s Talk consultations are informal, helpful and can be therapeutic, yet most students drop in about once or twice a semester, and the talk if often shorter than a regular 50-minute therapy session. When students find Let’s Talk useful, some wish to seek therapy with a counselor at the Counseling Center in Tivoli for 10 sessions, and we can easily help make that connection.
