Online Counseling

Online counseling allows students to work exactly as they would work in face-to-face counseling, but the counseling takes place via secure online video conferencing.  

The counselor will be located at home or in an office, the client may be at home or another location miles away from campus. This service was designed specifically for students who may be unable to attend counseling sessions on campus, and now can serve all enrolled students.
