Counseling Services

Initial Consultations are currently being offered to all students by an on-campus licensed professional counselor. These free, 30-minute confidential meetings are to discuss the student’s concerns, develop a plan, and determine the best service to address any continued needs. Some goals of an Initial Consultation may be to plan for safety; to arrange to have ongoing individual counseling off-campus; to feel better, get a different perspective, or solve a problem; or learn a skill or technique to reduce distress.

Initial Consultations are available on Tuesdays 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Thursdays 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and Fridays (virtually) 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. To schedule an Initial Consultation and fill out pre-appointment paperwork, please visit olivetcounseling.titaniumhwc.com. Please email counseling@olivetcollege.edu with any questions about Counseling Services.

If you are experiencing a mental health emergency or need immediate support, please call the Olivet College 24/7 support line at (877) 650-8875 to speak with a licensed counselor.
