TimelyCare: Telehealth for Students

Short-Term Therapy

We utilize a short-term therapy model that focuses on helping students clarify their concerns and work towards the resolution of difficulties. Students who would benefit from longer-term support may be referred to other services such as specialized campus resources, a provider within their insurance network, or a community agency.
