Counseling Center

Welcome! As we all navigate uncertain times, the Counseling Center is here to help. We are proud to offer multiple pathways to a personal level of care that can meet immediate and long-term needs.

We believe in providing treatment grounded in trust, respect, and connection. We provide a comprehensive array of services to help you meet your needs while providing our staff with a nourishing and rewarding place to work. We also work closely with our colleagues in the Health Center on the first floor. All of our providers are knowledgeable, caring, and have great respect for individual difference.  To access any of the services we offer, please call our Office Manager Mary Hoying at 315-859-4340, email us at counseling@hamilton.edu, or visit our virtual lobby during regular business hours! For the Fall 2020 semester, we will be offering all of our services via Zoom; we will resume acupuncture and wellness room services when we are back on campus!

Need someone to talk to?
If you need someone to talk with and connect but aren't sure if you need a trained therapist, a Care Contact may be right for you! Staff members in the Division of Student Life are available for chats from a safe distance or via Zoom. More information

Just looking for advice?
If you're looking for advice from a trained therapist on what kind of resources might be right for you, try our Initial Consultations. These are quick and deep dives into your needs to arrive at what on- or off-campus resources might be a good fit for you. Learn more

Looking to engage in therapy?
When it comes to engaging in therapy, you have options! Here are some choices:

  • See someone in the Counseling Center, which can be access by emailing us at counseling@hamilton.edu, calling 315-859-4340, or through our virtual Zoom lobby (note: we do not start making appointments until the first day of classes each semester; call us when classes start and we can get you scheduled!).
  • Access a therapist through our partner BetterMynd, which offers a wide diversity of therapists and therapeutic approaches. If you are having trouble using your insurance but would like to see a therapist with a specialty or demographic background we don't provide, please contact us and we can help you find care.
  • See a provider in the local community! If you need help navigating insurance or finding a therapist, see this guide for help.
