SWOSU counselors offer individual counseling to students on a limited basis, often in conjunction with other available services. For students meeting criteria for individual therapy, a full diagnostic assessment is completed and ongoing assessment of symptom severity is provided throughout treatment. SWOSU counselors maintain open communication with students regarding progress toward treatment goals and duration of treatment.

Students are referred to community providers if they desire individual therapy for non-acute symptoms or require intensive or specialized treatment beyond the scope of the Counseling Center. Students seeking ADHD evaluations or other psychological testing are also referred to the community. An up-to-date list of nearby providers, along with information about how to navigate appointment logistics, is available through our office. Students are also welcome to contact our office directly to discuss referral options.
