Limitations & Fees

Limitations of Treatment

Counseling and Psychological Services employs a short-term counseling model. If an assessment indicates that a student’s therapeutic needs are beyond the scope of what we are able to offer (e.g., expertise required or frequency of therapeutic contact indicated), the student will be given assistance in securing alternative off-campus therapeutic resources.


All services provided at Counseling and Psychological Services are free of charge to all full-time undergraduate students. Services are also free for part-time undergraduate and graduate students who have paid the Student Health Fee.

Assistance with referrals for Emerson community members who are not eligible for services is also provided free of charge.
