About Counseling

Many students experience difficulties including stress, depression, anxiety and relationship problems during their college years and find it's helpful to discuss concerns with a counselor. The CTC offers short-term counseling based on a brief treatment model to help students learn new skills to deal more effectively with problems interfering with their personal well-being and academic goals.

Undergraduate students enrolled in four or more credits are eligible for counseling, psychiatric services and psychoeducational assessment services. Students who do not meet the credit-hour requirements and prospective students are eligible for limited services.

Part-time graduate students completing research are eligible for services on a case-by-case basis.

Counseling services are free. A fee is charged for psychiatric and psychoeducational assessments and to cover the cost of some assessment services.

Yes. Counseling sessions are confidential.

Information cannot be released to anyone outside the CTC unless authorized by the student, faculty or staff member, or required by law. Idaho state law requires psychologists and graduate intern and practicum students to report limited information if there is reasonable suspicion that a minor, handicapped or elderly person is being abused, or if a person presents a serious danger of harming themselves or others.

Initial screening sessions usually last about 30 minutes. Individual appointments usually last 50 minutes.

Individual counseling is offered for students with personal concerns such as anxiety, stress, depression, relationship problems, suicidal thoughts or difficulties adjusting to college life

Career counseling is also available.

The demands of college can place strain on relationships. Counseling is available for couples who are experiencing difficulties or wish to improve the quality of their relationship. At least one member of the couple must be a student.
