Counseling & Psychological Services



Sarah Lawrence College Counseling & Psychological Services practitioners are trained to work with a diverse range of issues and can help students identify their treatment goals. Our staff are generalists and well equipped at treating the diverse needs of undergraduate and graduate students. We routinely treat students for depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and other psychological concerns. Our staff includes licensed psychologists, clinical social workers, and a part-time psychiatrist.

All services begin with an initial 30-minute tele-health consultation where students have the opportunity to talk about the concerns they wish to address. Based on the information presented, the therapist and the student will decide upon a treatment plan. Treatment plans may include on-campus care, off-campus referrals, or a combination of the two. Schedule an initial consultation

On-Campus Care

On-campus care begins with a tele-health consultation. During this consultation you and your provider will determine your next steps, which may include any of the following options.

Intake Appointment

A thorough evaluation with a clinician to gather historical and current information regarding your presenting concerns.

Individual Psychotherapy Sessions

Short term counseling to develop effective coping strategies, clarify issues, and work towards making positive changes in your life. Includes up to six individual sessions per academic year.

Group Therapy Sessions

A weekly opportunity to meet with students struggling with similar challenges. Our groups are facilitated by a clinician and provide a confidential space to gain support, healing, and perspective. Unlimited sessions per academic year.

Off-Campus Care

The SLC Counseling & Psychological Services Center has established relationships in Bronxville, Yonkers, Westchester County, and New York City that allow us to provide referrals to off-campus mental health specialists for ongoing and long term care.

Students who have enrolled in the SLC Student Health Insurance Plan are covered for treatment with any off campus licensed mental health clinician at 80% of reasonable and customary charges after a $150 annual deductible.

Students who are covered by plans other than the SLC Student Health Insurance Plan must contact their insurance plans directly to obtain coverage information.

If you are interested in receiving a referral for an off-campus provider or would like to discuss options for care, please contact Cary Bosak, Director of Counseling and Psychological Services.
