COVID-19 RESPONSE:  We at the JBU Student Counseling Center have been saddened with you as the on-campus school year is shortened. We know that there is no change without loss, and that going home can be disorienting and complicated even under normal circumstances.

The Student Counseling Center will continue providing counseling services until the end of the school year. If you live at a distance and your presenting concern is appropriately seen remotely, we offer online, technology-assisted counseling. Simply fill out the intake form below, and someone from our office will be in touch with you.

If you’re already a client, your counselor should already have reached out to you to reschedule your appointment. Depending on what you’re working on in counseling, your counselor will continue to see you online, assist you in finding the resources you need for the summer, or make some other arrangement as needed.

Should you wish to contact anyone at our office, please email us at studentcounselingcenter@jbu.edu. If you’re a client already, we’ll make sure your counselor sees it or if you have some other concern we can help with, we will contact you as soon as possible.

Services

Students face many trials in college and may benefit from addressing those trials with a skilled therapist in counseling. The Student Counseling Center staff is committed to providing an ethical and professional service to the JBU Community within a biblical worldview.

Our office provides counseling services during the Fall and Spring semesters. Most students are served on an individual basis and typically meet weekly for a 45-50 minute session. Some individuals need only a few sessions to work through their personal concerns. Some need more time. The number of sessions is based on the student's need and particular circumstances.

In the event a student's concern requires intensive therapeutic or medical care beyond the scope of the counseling center or health services, our office will assist students with referrals to professional off-campus support services.
