Counseling Services Can Benefit Everyone:
The college years are a unique time in an individual's life. It is a time when one emerges into adulthood. As our society continues to change and evolve, college students are experiencing some of the most dramatic, exciting, and often distressing changes. This period is one of excitement and uncertainty, possibility and confusion, new freedoms and new fears.
The lessons learned and the obstacles overcome during these years can provide a wonderful opportunity for intellectual, social, and emotional growth. These years can be a time for exploration, a time for healing, and a time to establish healthy habits that will promote your overall wellness throughout your lifetime.
Many individuals seek counseling only when life seems to be too difficult to manage, when negative consequences such as overwhelming stress, psychological problems or academic difficulties affect their performance as a student. Counseling services can, however, be a useful and rewarding experience for everyone who is navigating life, asking big questions, and exploring the endless options life seems to offer.

Scheduling Your First Appointment
When you contact the SFCC to schedule an appointment, you will be given a specific time (typically within 24-48 hours) where one of our professional counselors will contact you, by phone, to ask you some questions that will help the Counseling Center Staff determine how to best serve you. These conversations usually last 15 minutes. At the end of this conversation you will be scheduled to meet face-to-face with a counselor.
When you arrive for your first visit you will be asked to complete some paperwork. Most individuals need approximately 15 minutes to complete these materials, please plan accordingly and arrive early. Feel free to print out, review, and sign the Information and Informed Consent Form [below] and bring it with you to your first counseling session.
