We will listen, care, encourage, and empower you to make decisions that are right for you. Sessions are planned and scheduled around your classes and according to your needs.  If necessary, a referral to a private therapist or community service will be made.  When appropriate, meetings with a psychiatrist for medication management are arranged.
