Counseling services are provided to students who are currently enrolled at the University of Baltimore. Counseling services are not provided to web-based students living outside of the state of Maryland. Consultation services are available to faculty and staff of the University of Baltimore.
Stop by or call the Counseling Center at 410.837.5159 to schedule your first appointment. Students are generally able to schedule their initial appointments quickly. Walk in sessions for students being seen for the first time are also available. Students who are considered to be in an emergent situation (e.g., student at risk for harm) will be seen immediately.
What should I expect for my initial session?
The initial session will be scheduled for 50 minutes. We ask that students arrive 10 minutes in advance of their scheduled session. When you arrive you will be given paperwork to complete. These forms will not only assist the UBCC in maintaining accurate records, but also educate you about confidentiality in the counseling process, and provide information that will help the therapist to develop a fuller understanding of your concerns.
Once the paperwork is completed, you will meet with the therapist who will orient you to what therapy will entail and how the UBCC may be able to help you. During this time, you will be asked to provide information about your presenting concerns. The information that you share during this session will assist the therapist in completing the initial assessment. This assessment will assist you and the therapist in determining which of our professional services is best for you or which community resource may best meet your needs.
How do I schedule an appointment after my initial session?
Appointments are generally scheduled with the therapist after the initial appointment if appropriate. Sessions are scheduled for 50 minutes and generally on a weekly basis (frequency will be decided by you and your therapist). If you wish to change your appointment, you should contact 410.837.5159 to do so. If you are not going to be able to maintain your appointment, the UBCC requests 24 hour notice.
