Due to the sensitive and personal nature of counseling, all personal counseling services are confidential.  This means that nothing you share with your counselor is revealed to anyone outside of Counseling Services without your written consent (with the exceptions of imminent danger of serious harm to yourself or others, abuse of children or endangered adults, or in the case of a legally issued subpeona).  It means that no one can phone or visit CS and even find out whether you are receiving services.  Counselors are bound both ethically and legally to maintain confidentiality.

Presentations/ Consultations

Workshops and consultations on a wide variety of mental health and performance related issues for classes and groups are available. Contact Ruth A. Larson in Counseling Services to request a presentation or consultation.
