Counseling Services FAQs

What kind of services do you offer?

At this time, our licensed clinicians provide psychological evaluation, brief treatment and referrals for individuals and couples.


How much does it cost?

There is no fee for our services.


Does my use of the Counseling Services Office become part of my student files?

ABSOLUTELY NOT. Your records DO NOT become part of any file outside this office. Our counselors are bound by professional ethics and New York law to maintain the confidentiality of your contact with us.


What if I need to see a counselor immediately?

We give urgent situations the highest priority. Call our main number (914) 888-5150 or call the licensed clinician on the campus on which you would like to be seen. You can also come by the Counseling Services Office during normal business hours. If the door is closed with a "Do Not Disturb" sign, we may be briefly out of the office, teaching a class or in session with someone. For after-hours situations, call 911 or go to your local crisis center or emergency room.


What about counseling for alcohol or drug concerns?

Although we offer evaluative services for drug or alcohol concerns, there are outside referral sources that are better equipped for dealing with such problems. If there is a need for additional services, we will make every effort to suggest a referral.


Who knows if I've been to the Counseling Services Office?

Your visits to the Counseling Services Office are CONFIDENTIAL. Files are kept in our offices, in locked cabinets for the purposes of case management and statistical reporting. New York law prohibits our revealing the identities of students we see unless we feel they are a danger to themselves or others.
