Dear Students,

Welcome back to campus! We're off to a busy start to the Fall term, and I wanted to give an update on what's going on at Counseling Services right now.

Demand for initial visits is high right now, and the waiting time can be as much as 2 weeks. We pride ourselves on being as responsive as we can to our students' needs, so to accommodate this increased demand, we're adding more triage appointment slots whenever possible. We're also in the process of hiring additional clinicians, which will help us be even more flexible and responsive.

If you're waiting for an initial visit right now, thank you so much for your patience and understanding. I also want to let you know about some resources that you can might want to use while you're waiting for your appointment.

Thank you again for your patience as we all adjust to the demands of being back on campus - we'll keep giving you updates here on this site.

Warmly,
Lee H. Coleman, Ph.D., ABPP
Clinical Director, Counseling Services
