We're nice. Promise!

Everyone has problems sometimes.  Working with a counselor in a private setting gives you an opportunity to share your concern, explore your options, and work toward a solution. Students seek counseling for a number of reasons, such as:

  • Academic issues
  • Problems with friends or roommates
  • Relationship troubles
  • Sexual assault and other traumatic experiences
  • Feeling stressed or anxious
  • Feeling down or depressed
  • Financial stress
  • Adjusting to college
  • Concerns with family
  • Identity concerns

No concern is too big or too small.  All counseling services are free and confidential.  We do not currently provide testing or psychiatric medication services, but we are happy to provide names for referral.

Making an Appointment

The Center is open: Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m.- 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm- 4:30 p.m.

Our phones are open: Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.- 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm – 4:30 p.m.

When classes are in session during the Fall and Spring semesters, new and returning clients can schedule an initial consultation by calling the Counseling Center at 207-581-1392 after 8:30 am, Monday through Friday.

In an initial consultation appointment, you and the counselor will talk about what led you to call and discuss options that best meet your need for moving forward which could include such things as counseling at the Center, help connecting to other resources on campus  or in the community, or referral to a clinician off campus.

We are currently unable to provide services to students who are geographically located outside of the State of Maine due to licensing laws.

If you are crisis (thinking of harming yourself or someone else, or you have recently experienced a significant traumatic event) please call the Counseling Center (during business hours), UMPD (207-581-4040) or 911.
