Individual Counseling

Individual Counseling is free confidential short-term therapy available to all registered UC Davis students. The initial appointment will help clarify if short-term individual counseling is recommended, and an appointment will be made with a staff member as soon as possible. If longer term counseling services are needed, referral to a community professional will be made. Individual Counseling appointments are located at North Hall.
