Can I trust that counseling will be confidential?
We are ethically committed to confidentiality and federal/state laws require it. This means that even your attendance in counseling is kept private and confidential. The law states that there are four exceptions to this general rule: a) you may request (by means of a signed release) that your counselor may reveal information to other individuals or agencies of your choice; b) in instances where there is imminent danger of serious harm to yourself or others, a counselor may reveal that information to prevent harm; c) in cases involving physical and/or sexual abuse of children or endangered adults, the counselor must report such abuse; and (d) where otherwise requested by court order or state/federal law.
Who would be my counselor?
At your first appointment, you will see a counselor for an intake interview. If individual counseling is recommended, you will be assigned to one of our staff counselors after your intake. They are trained professional psychologists and have expertise in university counseling.
How long do I need to wait until I can see a counselor?
C3A is fully committed to schedule you with a counselor as soon as possible. However, sometimes students’ schedules have limited times available, and this can lead to short waiting periods after the initial intake interview.

Would I be able to get a psychiatric consultation if I need one?
