Personal Counseling Center
You can make your first appointment online, or by calling (716) 829-7819 or just stop by Marguerite Hall. Our receptionist will find a convenient time for you to meet with one of our counselors. You will be asked for your first name and phone number only. No further information will be asked.
Nurse Practitioner Appointment
To schedule an appointment with our Board Certified Nurse Practitioner, you must first meet with one of our counselors. Together, we will determine appropriateness of referral and manage necessary paperwork and scheduling. These appointments are also free of charge and can be made by calling (716) 829-7819.
What to Expect
- Visits to the Personal Counseling are free of charge and there are no limits to the number of sessions you may have.
- When you arrive for your first appointment, you will be asked to complete a short intake form that will be discussed at the start of your session. You will then meet with one of our counselors for an appointment that lasts between 45-50 minutes.
The Personal Counseling Center offers a place and time to openly talk about any issues, difficulties, questions and/or concerns. During your session, the counselor will listen to you, and through conversation, help you better understand yourself and your situation. Together, you’ll develop some goals and plans for change. You may continue to meet with your counselor as long as necessary to meet these goals, or until another plan of action has been established.
Sessions can be scheduled weekly or as determined by you and your counselor. Your contact with the Personal Counseling Center is confidential. It is not part of your academic record. Please contact the center at (716) 829-7819 if you have further questions regarding the counseling process.
