    Personal Counseling

    Counseling provides a safe, confidential place to work through individual challenges and stressors that may interfere with your academic success.

    The primary goal of counseling is to help individuals build upon their strengths and enhance their ability to address issues of life or personal adjustment. The role of the psychologist or counselor is to clarify the nature of the concern, offer support, encourage a deeper understanding of issues, provide information and guidelines and work towards a problem-solving solution.

    Counseling services are available to all enrolled Ursuline College students. After an initial interview/assessment to determine appropriate services, recommendations will be made to meet the counseling needs of all our students. The number of visits is determined individually. Appointments typically last for one hour. If intensive therapy or specialized acute care is required, the student will be referred to appropriate community or private agencies.

    Current Emergency & Crisis Policy

    In an attempt to assist students who are experiencing a crisis or emergency situation, the college will make every effort to contact an appropriate staff person. Students should note, however, that the college cannot guarantee immediate contact with an appropriate individual and in that case, should call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

    Office Hours

    Summer: Dr. Anita is available 20 hours a week. Email her to arrange an appointment.
    August-June: In-person therapy sessions only, 8:00 - 4:30, Monday - Friday. 


    Information shared with the psychologist or counselor, as mandated by law, is confidential. In other words, there is no sharing of information with anyone, including referral sources. There are some exceptions to this confidentiality, as delineated by law. If this is a matter of concern to you, please ask your counseling professional at the initial appointment.

    Cancellations and No-Shows

    Personal commitment to counseling is crucial for your success. If you must miss a session, please contact your mental health professional (psychologist or counselor) to cancel and reschedule.
