At the UMaine Counseling Center we strive to provide compassionate and professional assistance with counseling tailored to your goals. We typically provide short-term, individual counseling, but staff will explore options with you if extended service is indicated. When students are seen for longer periods of time, they and their counselor will collaboratively explore their goals and put those in writing which will be reviewed by our Senior Clinical Staff to support effective treatment. Clients whose concerns require more intensive care or specialized treatment beyond our scope of practice may be referred to mental health providers in the community.
We are best able to meet the most students’ needs when our scheduling is flexible. Therefore we don’t assign a regular day or time to meet. Instead, we identify the next meeting time based on client need and therapist availability. Appointments usually last 45-50 minutes.
