Meet Our Staff
Each clinician is trained to assess and treat a wide variety of concerns, although some staff have particular areas of expertise. Clinicians also are available to consult on a variety of issues affecting student growth and development. If you are a new client and would like to meet with a specific clinician, you may request her or him. However, the first available appointment may be with a different provider. In that case, you would have a longer wait time for your first appointment.

Voice mail is activated during the lunch hour and messages are promptly returned afterward. If urgent matters arise during that time or if you are calling to make an administrative referral, you may press 0 for assistance from a counselor.
