Couples counseling is provided to students when at least one partner is service eligible for the semester. Couples can include roommates, partners, teammates, or other relationships that are experiencing concern or conflict.
If you are seeking couples counseling, both partners will need to complete initial intake forms at their first appointment. At your first session with your therapist, you can expect to discuss your concerns about the relationship and establish goals for your therapy treatment. Couples sessions typically last 45 minutes, meet every other week, and take place with both members of the couple in the room. There may be times when each partner might meet individually with the therapist, especially at the start of the therapy experience.
