Counseling is confidential. In accordance with state and federal law as well as professional and ethical guidelines for mental health providers, we maintain confidential records of all contacts with clients. This means that no identifying information - written or otherwise - about your contact with student wellness counselors will be disclosed to anyone outside student wellness counselors without your written authorization. This includes academic departments, the registrar's office, student health services, and other campus entities; no one gets to know what you talk about (or even that you are coming here) unless you want them to know. There are some legal exceptions to this confidentiality; they are rare but important.
