How to Make an Appointment


To make an appointment with a counselor call us at 203-371-7955 or complete our online contact form and our office manager will get back to you in a timely manner. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You may also stop by our office at the Park Avenue House.

Your first visit is a screening and will include a discussion about your current concerns after you fill out an in-take form.  Follow-up sessions are usually scheduled and last about 45 minutes.  The number of sessions depend on each student’s needs and the presenting issue.

You will work to establish short-term objectives as well as long-term goals with your counselor.  Your commitment to the counseling process is key.  Each counselor at the Counseling Center believes that our role is to empower you to resolve your present problems and issues with our support and guidance.
