Counseling Center: Individual & Group Counseling
The RMU Counseling Center is currently offering Distance Counseling (Teletherapy) services only, except for emergency appointments. Please click here to learn more about online and distance counseling.
During your initial consultation appointment, you and your counselor will discuss which Counseling Center services might be most appropriate for you. These may include:
Supportive Appointments: Students may be recommended for up to 3 supportive appointments per semester for targeted problem-focused concerns.
Individual Counseling: Students may be recommended for up to 8 individual counseling sessions per semester for presenting concerns including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, grief or loss, peer or family concerns, relationship concerns, life-altering events, etc. Additional sessions may be recommended on a case-by-case basis.
Group Counseling: Students may be recommended for group counseling if it is determined that group would be beneficial for the student’s presenting concerns. Groups are created as the need for a group arises. Past groups have included grief or loss, body image concerns, transgender and gender non-conforming peer support, interpersonal concerns, mood disorders, and general coping skills. The available groups will be discussed when you meet with a counselor.
Community Referrals: If your presenting concern is beyond the scope of practice of the RMU Counseling Center, you may be referred to a community provider. Examples include, but are not limited to, severe eating disorders, drug and alcohol counseling, and needing to attend counseling more than once per week.
