Professional, confidential counseling is available free of charge to all students. Counseling can help students cope with personal issues and assist them in meeting the challenges of a creative academic environment.

Counseling Services offers brief individual therapy, crisis intervention, assessments, and referrals to community resources. In addition to personal counseling, we provide presentations and workshops on topics related to student life and the experience of being a creative person.

Confidential consultations also are available for faculty and staff.


To make an appointment with a counselor, contact Student Affairs in Oakland at 510.594.3666 or in San Francisco at 415.703.9570.

Our staff consists of a director and assistant director (each a licensed psychologist) and doctoral-level psychology interns. All interns have previous counseling experience and each is closely supervised by the director and assistant director.

Faculty and staff members who seek consultation may contact the director at 510.594.3670.
