Students come to the FIT Counseling Center for assistance with a variety personal and academic concerns. We encourage students to contact the Counseling Center when concerns are emerging and not to wait, as problems left untreated or unresolved can become much larger and affect your personal and academic well-being.
Our services are free to all registered, degree-seeking students and are private and confidential.
The Counseling Center employs licensed social workers, psychologists, and consulting psychiatrists who provide psychological assessments, brief counseling (approximately 1-3 sessions in length depending on treatment needs), medication evaluations, and professional referrals to more long term community mental health treatment.
