Counseling Services

Counseling services is a free and confidential resource for all currently enrolled AU students. In addition to individual counseling we offer relationship counseling as well as group therapy. We also provide seminars/workshops on a variety of topics related to mental health and well-being. For more information about our services, please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page.

Our team of professional therapists includes licensed psychologists and social workers, as well as practicum trainees who are currently enrolled in doctoral programs for psychology. All trainees are supervised by a licensed staff member.

To make an appointment you can call or email any of our counselors directly.

Confidentiality

All aspects of your participation in counseling, including the scheduling of appointments and content of counseling sessions, are confidential. Our office maintains a record of the counseling services provided to you that is shared only with you and other counselors in the center. Your file does not become part of your academic transcript and is not shared with any individual, including other AU staff, outside of the counseling office. Information will be released only with your written permission. Our counselors are required by law to notify others who can assist you if we believe that you are in danger of harming yourself or others, or if we suspect abuse of a child or dependent adult.

Emergency
