Let's Talk is a program offered by our embedded counselors. It is not a counseling appointment but a casual conversation about Counseling Center services that are available to you. Conversations with Let’s Talk counselors are private, informal consultations as part of our outreach area of service. Let's Talk appointments are 15 minutes long, and there is no fee to attend.
To schedule a Let's Talk appointment, please see our list of embedded counselors. Choose the embedded counselor who's in your college or unit, and select "Schedule a Let's Talk consultation." If this option isn't available for the counselor you want to see, please email them.
What to Expect
- One-on-one, 15-minute informal consultations with an embedded counselor
- No paperwork is needed ahead of time (minimal demographic information will be gathered for the purpose of tracking our delivery of service).
- New insight and solutions to your problems and information about other resources on- and off- campus
- Let’s Talk is an informal consultation only. Let’s Talk is not counseling.
- Let’s Talk conversations are not part of students’ releasable records.
- Although Let's Talk consultants are mental health professionals, Let's Talk consultations do not constitute mental health treatment.
- Limits to confidentiality include when there is an immediate threat of harm to you or others. Let's Talk counselors are required by law to report this. When a minor, vulnerable adult, or animal is being abused, Let's Talk consultants are also required by law to report this.
