Here’s all that’s required for video counseling sessions:
You need to be physically located in Indiana during your appointment.
You need to have access to audio/video technology (a phone, tablet, or computer).
You need to have access to a confidential space for your sessions. *If you do not have a private location, please indicate that and our team can make arrangements for you to utilize a private room for your Zoom appointment.
Is video counseling right for you?
There’s no need for you to travel to and from the UC LINK or to worry about getting to class before or after your appointment. Your counseling session can happen wherever you choose.
Sometimes it’s just easier to share private information when you’re in the comfort of your own space. With no need to come to the LINK you can even attend in your PJs!
Does this really work?
Online therapy services continue to be a growing trend. According to recent research, it’s just as effective for most issues and is a fine alternative to meeting with a counselor face-to-face. It will be helpful to the campus community as well in effort to practice appropriate social distancing.

The Student Counseling Services office is located on the second floor of the LINK in the Rick L. & Vicki L. James University Center. Office hours are 8 am - 5 pm Monday through Friday by appointment and crisis counseling is available as needed.
It is the intent of Trine's counseling services to facilitate emotional and psychological development which can make a positive impact on academics, decision-making, and student retention. The counselor works to help students resolve problems that may impede personal, social, and academic functioning while emphasizing prevention, development, adjustment and overall wellness.
Students come to counseling for several different reasons including depression, anxiety, and relationship difficulties. In addition, it is quite common for students to experience overwhelming feelings of loneliness, isolation, disappointing academic results, and career indecision. Counseling services offers a healthy way to handle these challenges and stressors. The counselor will determine what services are the most appropriate for the student and if it is decided that the student's needs can be best met elsewhere, then a referral will be provided.
