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
During this time of online learning, the Becker College Counseling Services Office will provide mental health therapy services through Doxy.me, an online medical 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.
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 .

Please know that Becker College Counseling Services are available to assist the student population. Because of new information coming in every day and the many changes taking place, students should monitor the latest information.
