Services Offered

ASU Counseling Services offers confidential, personal counseling and crisis services for students experiencing emotional concerns, problems in adjusting, and other factors that affect their ability to achieve their academic and personal goals. Counseling staff have training and experience in issues facing university students and are committed to helping them adjust to campus life and meet their academic goals. 

The Services at ASU Counseling are designed to ensure that any student has access to professional mental health services.  We accomplish this by ensuring that any student can be seen for a initial appointment the same-day they want to be seen.  This appointment is designed to be brief to quickly assess the students reasons for seeking help, their academic and social functioning, and whether they are currently experiencing a crisis. From there our goal is to match each student's need to available services.  These may include any of the following:

  • on-campus individual or group counseling
  • online therapy modules
  • off-campus individual or group counseling
  • on-campus medical evaluation and services
  • off-campus medical evaluations and services

Sometimes a decision about need and services can happen in that brief first appointment. Sometimes it will take additional conversations and appointments to determine what is best. Each student collaborates with their counselor to determine which of the service best meets their needs.  No student will be charged while we collaboratively figure out which service is right for them.
