Single Session at the UCC: Start Strong & Simple (SSS)

Single Session at the UCC: Start Strong & Simple (SSS)

Students are now able to attend a single session counseling appointment at the UCC. Visits will be scheduled through OSCC.

In a single session appointment, a student will meet with a counselor for a one-time session to discuss a current problem or concern.  The counselor will help you clarify your problem and work with you to develop skills and strategies to create a personalized action plan. You will have the option for a brief follow up if needed.

Book a single session appointment if you…

  • Have a problem or concern and are interested in a single conversation with a professional who will work with you to create an action plan
  • Are NOT interested in ongoing counseling services
  • Are NOT currently being seen at the UCC for individual therapy
  • Have been in counseling at the UCC in the past, but are currently only interested in a one-time session with a counselor to solve a current problem

    • Thoughts of suicide
    • Thoughts of harming others
    • Worried that someone’s life is in danger
  • Have experienced a traumatic event that is affecting your daily functioning
