"Let's Talk" is designed for students who are wanting to talk to a counselor casually. This is not a formal counseling session. Speaking with a counselor in a confidential setting can help you access support, provide perspective, help you explore resources and options and discuss how counseling might be helpful.

Same-day 45-minute session focused on what is top of mind for you at the moment and your counselor will provide some immediate support.

Additional free virtual counseling appointments with extended availability on nights and weekends through our partnership with humanest

Available seven days a week, including evenings, these 45-minute sessions can be booked online up to 3 weeks in the future.
