Perhaps your child has recently started working with Counseling Services, or you believe they would benefit from seeking counseling. Counseling Services provides individual, couples, and group therapy to support the academic and personal growth of enrolled students. Our services are free of charge. We use a brief treatment approach and will try to resolve a student’s concerns as quickly as possible. If we believe on-going counseling would be beneficial, or we believe the concerns presented are outside the scope of our service, we will work with students to identify local community resources as well as help them access their health insurance plan.
See our searchable Referral Database for a list of local providers.
Our services are confidential, as governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. If your child is 18 years of age or older, they "hold the privilege". This means we require a signed release of information prior to responding to any request for information about your child - whether or not they have been seen in Counseling Services.
How to Access Our Services
Any enrolled students may contact Counseling Services at 978-934-6800 to schedule an initial appointment, or they can stop by the Wellness Center on the third floor of University Crossing to speak with a receptionist.
