The Counseling Center has moved to a teletherapy model. This means no in-person counseling. All sessions will be via phone or Zoom, as these two mediums are HIPPA compliant. In other words, they are a confidential means to communicate with you. Please do not email confidential information as this is not a secure medium. To schedule an appointment please email [email protected] or call 610-285-5077.
