* New: Not all students need ongoing counseling services for 1:1 therapy.  Sometimes a simple, single conversation with a licensed, unbiased therapist is all that is needed. We now have a walk-in clinic every Monday from 2:00-4:00 PM for a quick 15-20 minute conversation with one of our therapists.  No appointment necessary, first come, first served.  We call it "Let's Talk".

The counseling services staff at McGrath Health & Wellness Center welcomes you! We know that making your first appointment with a therapist can be scary. It may even be the most difficult step in your journey to wellness. You are not alone. We support you and will be right along with you as you take steps to improve your mental health and wellbeing.
