Counseling Services

Each year, hundreds of students come to the FIT Counseling Center for assistance with personal and academic concerns. There is no problem that is “silly” and no problem that is “too small.” In fact, we encourage students to contact us when concerns are beginning to emerge, as problems left untreated or unresolved can become much larger and affect your personal and academic well-being.

Our services are free to all students and are private and confidential. Faculty, staff, parents and student groups are also invited to use the Center’s consultation services and educational resources.

The Counseling Center staff, licensed social workers, psychologists, and consulting psychiatrists, provide short-term counseling and professional referrals for students. All clinicians have advanced degrees, training and experience, and participate in ongoing professional development and clinical supervision. Sessions with social workers and psychologists average 45 minutes in length, while sessions with consulting psychiatrists average 30 minutes in length.
