Frequently Asked Questions 
Counseling

These are some common questions regarding student counseling services provided to all PCOM students by the Office of Student Affairs.

What does the intake process look like?

When students request their first appointment, they are asked to fill out consent paperwork that asks for demographic information, the reason they are coming for therapy.

The student then meets with the counselor for an intake evaluation where students can talk with counselors about their issues or problems, and at the end of the session a decision is made about the most appropriate follow-up to help resolve those problems.

Are the sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is maintained in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. Faculty, staff or administration will not have any access to student counseling records without written permission from the client.

How much do the services cost?

All of the services that we offer (individual therapy, group therapy, consultations and walk-in appointments) are free to students.

How many sessions do I need to attend?

Students can come for one appointment or they can come for several. The approach of the counseling is generally short-term and problem-focused.

How long are sessions?

Sessions are typically 45-60 minutes long.

How do I schedule an appointment?
