Finding services closer to home:  If you are looking to establish services off-campus, we encourage you to ask these types of questions, and any other questions regarding issues that are important to you.

Several questions you can consider asking:

  • What days and times are you currently available?

  • Where is your office located? 

  • Could you describe your helping approach?
  • What are your limitations on length of treatment?
  • Do you have a waitlist at this time?
  • Do you provide Teletherapy?
  • What are your fees? (Some providers do not accept insurance and are all self-pay.)
    • Do you have any student discount fees?
    • Do you have a sliding fee scale?
    • Are you an in-network provider for my insurance?
    • Will you directly bill my insurance company?
    • Do you have a payment plan?
