If you are experiencing an emergency:
Our services are offered to all students currently enrolled at the University of Baltimore but not to online students living outside of Maryland.
In addition, our consultation services are available to all faculty and staff at UB.
Your initial session will run 50 minutes. We ask that you arrive 10 minutes in advance of your scheduled session to complete paperwork. These forms not only assist the Counseling Center in maintaining accurate records but also educate you about confidentiality in the counseling process and provide information that will help your counselor develop a fuller understanding of your concerns.
Once you've completed the paperwork, you will meet with a therapist who will orient you to what your counseling will entail and how the center may be able to help you. During this time, the counselor will ask you to provide information about your concerns, which will assist the counselor in completing the initial assessment. This assessment will assist you and the counselor in determining which of our services is best for you or which community resource may best meet your needs.
If appropriate, you'll schedule follow-up sessions with your counselor. Sessions are scheduled for 50 minutes on a weekly basis, generally (although you and and your counselor will determine the frequency of your sessions). If you wish to change your appointment, call us at 410.837.5159; please notify us 24 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment.
