Counseling Center

The college years are often a time of change and growth, challenge and achievement. When challenges present themselves it is often helpful to talk to a caring, professional counselor. The Counseling Center offers a free, confidential place to discuss personal concerns, problems, or feelings as students grow towards greater independence and satisfaction with life. For those students needing care beyond the scope of our services, for example weekly psychotherapy, psychiatric evaluation, or specialized substance abuse or intensive mental health treatment, we can assist with referrals to services in the local community.  Appointments can be made by calling the main line at 617-243-2451 or the Director at 617-243-2145. 

Hours and Location:
The Counseling Center is open during the academic year Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

We are located in Case House, 188 Woodland Road.

For after hours emergencies, contact Campus Police at 617-243-2279.

Confidentiality
Confidentiality is an essential feature of the Counseling Center. Your counselor will discuss confidentiality in detail at your initial appointment. You are welcome to ask any questions you might have at that time.
