Welcome to Fall Semester 2022!
The Counseling Center Staff welcomes all of our students to a new fall semester! We are
passionate about helping students throughout their time here, and know that students need
different supports at various points of their journey. For that reason, we offer a variety of
services – group therapy, short-term individual therapy, referral coordination, emergency
services, self-help, and workshops / presentations, to name a few. We encourage you to explore
these and other resources on our website, and encourage students to connect with us to learn
more about how we can help:
• Get started with an Initial Consultation. Students can call or stop in to schedule an Initial
Consultation. This appointment with a counselor by phone will last approximately
twenty minutes. The counselor will talk with the student about their concerns and
collaborate to make recommendations for services and resources in the Counseling
Center, on campus, and/or in the community that will best match their needs.
• Students can stop by Let’s Talk in the Student Union or Let’s TeleTalk by Zoom for a
brief and confidential one-on-one consultation with a counselor. Let’s Talk consultants
can help students address specific problems, familiarize them with the process of talking
to a counselor, share helpful resources, offer their perspective on a student’s concerns,
and assist in learning how to help a friend. Offered on a first come, first-served basis,
and not a substitute for counseling, but a great way to get direction or resources for next
We look forward to connecting with our students this semester and being a part of their
App State journey!
