Counseling Services provides a supportive environment in which students are encouraged to seek solutions to any social, emotional, or behavioral barriers to their success. We operate from a brief therapy model in which students are helped to define goals and seek solutions to their personal, social, or academic concerns. We provide confidential services which are included in tuition to address concerns ranging from challenges with adjustment to college, stress, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, relationship concerns, substance abuse, anger, self-harm, eating concerns, identity development, and more.

A Message from Becker College Counseling Services Office
As we continue to struggle with the effects of a pandemic, new societal stressors have emerged.
Following the killing of George Floyd, there has been a concomitant escalation of anger, strife, and despair in communities across America. This has resulted in historic civil protests, cultural unrest and authoritative government response. Students watching, participating in, or being affected by these events, may be experiencing increased stressors, fears, and anxiety.
We have implemented a weekly “Let’s Chat” conversation forum, through www.Becker.edu. Every Wednesday at noon, Dr. Paul Butler leads an online conversation pertinent to issues facing students today. We encourage all Becker College students to participate!
Please also be aware, Becker College Counseling Services are available to assist the student population, throughout the summer months, and into the Fall semester. (Watch for information)
Currently, the Becker College Counseling Services Office is providing mental health therapy services through Doxy.me, an online HIPAA compliant platform. This requires that the student have an internet connection, and a computer or phone, equipped with a camera. Ongoing psychotherapy and psychiatry clients will receive links to their care provider’s Doxy.me page.
If you are unable to communicate this way, please, contact the Counseling Services office. We will work to accommodate.
Psychotherapists are available for consultation to help students adjust and cope. Students seeking support are encouraged to fill out the request form found at https://www.becker.edu/student-life/student-support/counseling/. Students should include the times they are available to conference online. The counseling center will reply with an appointment time for a counselor and Doxy.me Telehealth link.
If you are unable to facilitate an online telehealth appointment, please call 508.373.9551 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
