If you have expressed concern to your child and want to know if they are seeing someone in the Counseling Service we encourage you to ask them directly. We have found that, in most cases, students are willing to be open with their parents at least to the extent of notifying them that they are in therapy. The degree to which students are willing to share additional information about what they are discussing in therapy is entirely up to the individual. Staff at the Counseling Service will not disclose whether or not a student is receiving services, much less what they are working on, without the student's written consent. We want students to feel comfortable sharing information with us knowing that it will be kept in confidence.
