Counseling & Psychological Services



Sarah Lawrence College Counseling & Psychological Services practitioners 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 who are specifically trained to work with college students.

All services begin with an initial 30-minute 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 comprehensive intake appointment after which students may engage in individual sessions (weekly, 45 minutes, up to six individual sessions per academic year); group therapy sessions (weekly, 60-75 minutes. unlimited sessions per academic year); or self-care sessions (biweekly, 30 minutes, flexible sessions per academic year). Our psychiatrist is available on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays for medication evaluations and prescription management. Learn more about scheduling a psychiatric medication appointment.

Off-Campus Care: The SLC Counseling & Psychological Services Center has established relationships in Bronxville, Yonkers, Westchester County, and New York City, which allow us to provide referrals to off-campus mental health specialists for ongoing and expert care.

Students who have enrolled in the SLC Student Health Insurance Plan are covered for treatment with any 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.
