Types of Counseling Center Services

Individual Counseling

The Counseling Center offers brief individual therapy to students for a variety of personal concerns. Most students who are able to meet their goals quickly are seen for one or two sessions. Many students find that the initial meeting itself is all they need to explore and clarify their feelings and options. For students requesting more intensive treatment and diagnostic assessment, an individualized service plan will be developed in collaboration with the student to better address their needs.

Consultation and Crisis Intervention

Counselors are available during normal working hours to consult with students, faculty, staff, parents or others who are concerned about the well-being of a Hocking College student. Counselors are also trained to assist students in the aftermath of campus crisis or tragedies. Please note that if you believe a student is at imminent risk of harm to self or others, please call 911 or Campus Safety 740-753-6598 immediately and request a wellness check. The Hopewell Crisis Counseling Hotline can be reached 24/7 at 1-888-475-8484.

Referrals

Students may be referred to resources, offering other services from those available through the Counseling Center. Referrals may be made to other on-campus services or to community professionals. Referral service's costs are not covered by Hocking College.
