The University Counseling Center (UCC) provides a comprehensive initial assessment and an individualized treatment plan to full-time members of the University of Rochester community who pay the mandatory health fee. Based on the initial assessment, a treatment plan is developed by the clinician that addresses the client's unique needs and concerns. This plan may include recommendations such as, but not limited to: group therapy, workshops, brief therapy, referrals to community provider for specialized treatment or longer term therapy services, Therapist Assisted On-line (TAO), case management services, psychiatry or other campus services.
Our therapists are licensed professionals and professionals-in-training from a variety of mental health disciplines. They employ many treatment approaches and draw upon a wide range of training and experiences in the field of psychotherapy.
Our consulting psychiatrists are available for psychiatric evaluations and ongoing medication management. All psychiatry appointments require a referral from a UCC therapist or UHS primary care physician/nurse practitioner. Students who choose not to follow the UHS psychiatrist's recommendations will be referred to other sources of care. UCC case management services are available to help with referral to the appropriate provider.
UCC is committed to offering high quality services. We routinely make recordings of individual and group therapy sessions for review by our supervisory staff, for program evaluation, and for treatment planning. Your therapist can answer questions about this policy.
If you are unable to keep your appointment, we ask you to call our office to cancel or reschedule. If you do not keep your appointment, your therapist will contact you to determine your desire to continue in treatment. It is possible that your appointment time for the following session will be given to another student if we do not hear from you at that time.
