Frequently Asked Questions

How much are counseling services?

Services are FREE for any current CVHS DVM or Graduate student.

Will CVHS faculty, staff, and students know that I am going to therapy?

Only if you tell them. We will make your confidentiality a priority, ensuring that no details of your attendance or treatment records will be disclosed to anyone outside of CVHS Counseling services.

What is therapy like?

The therapy experience depends a lot on how you approach it. Ultimately, it is an intentional conversation with an impartial person who can help guide and direct you through challenges in life.

I don't think my problems are that big or important, should I even go to therapy?

You don't have to be in a crisis to go to therapy, it is for anyone who is having a hard time with life.

Will attending therapy count as an excused absence?

Yes, we can provide you with the necessary documentation to have your absence excused.
