The University Counseling Center (UCC) provides a comprehensive initial assessment and an individualized treatment plan to full-time members of the University of Rochester community who pay the mandatory health fee. Based on the initial assessment, a treatment plan is developed by the clinician that addresses the client's unique needs and concerns. This plan may include recommendations such as, but not limited to: group therapy, workshops, brief therapy, referrals to community provider for specialized treatment or longer term therapy services, Therapist Assisted On-line (TAO), case management services, psychiatry or other campus services.
Our therapists are licensed professionals and professionals-in-training from a variety of mental health disciplines. They employ many treatment approaches and draw upon a wide range of training and experiences in the field of psychotherapy.
Our consulting psychiatrists are available for psychiatric evaluations and ongoing pharmacotherapy or medication management. All psychiatry appointments require a referral from a UCC therapist or UHS primary care physician. To continue receiving pharmacotherapy or medication management services, you must follow the recommendations of your psychiatrist, which may include engaging in long term individual treatment in the Rochester community. UCC case management services are available to help with referral to the appropriate provider.
