Counseling Services offers comprehensive clinical services to the full-time undergraduate students of Manhattanville College free of charge. We offer individual, group, couple, and family therapy, as well as consultations, assessments, psychiatric evaluations, crisis intervention, and referrals. We also have a wellness room that includes a massage chair, a light box and biofeedback.
Individual Counseling provides students with an opportunity to discuss a variety of issues in a safe, confidential and supportive environment. Such issues may include: adjustment difficulties, homesickness, relationship stress, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, family discord, gender and sexual identity, alcohol and substance abuse, eating disorders, and many others.
Counseling Services follows a brief therapy model in order to accommodate the entire student body. During your first session, you and your counselor will determine how Counseling Services can best meet your needs. If a student requires long term counseling or their issues are beyond the scope of Counseling Services, a referral to an off campus mental health provider may become necessary. If this is the case, Counseling Services will work with the student on locating and transitioning to an outside provider.
