Who Will Know About My Counseling?

Our counselors understand that privacy is an important concern for many students. We will not discuss what you choose to share with us, or even that you requested counseling, with your parents, friends, faculty, or staff outside of the Counseling Center without your consent. We value your privacy. The only exceptions to this are when physical safety is threatened. Our counselors are happy to discuss any privacy or confidentiality concerns you might have.
