How can we help?

When seeking an appointment with the Counseling Center you may review this information and let us know which type of appointment you need. We understand that each situation is unique and cannot be fully described, but please do your best so that we can make sure we offer you the appropriate service.

Individual Counseling

Individual counseling involves one-to-one meetings with a counselor to address important personal concerns (see FAQs). 

Couples Counseling

Couples' counseling involves both members of the couple usually meeting with a single counselor to address communication and relationship problems. To be eligible for these free services, one of the partners must be an enrolled William & Mary student.

Group Counseling

Group counseling usually involves 5-8 students meeting with one or two counselors to address issues of shared concern within the group. For most, group therapy is the most effective and appropriate treatment option. Find out what to expect in a group and which groups are currently available.  

Family Counseling

Family sessions usually involve two or more members of a family meeting with a single counselor to address family issues impacting student wellbeing. Consultations to parents concerned about a student at William & Mary are also available.


The Counseling Center staff is available to design and/or implement outreach programs on a wide variety of psycho-educational topics. Consultation services are offered to university administrative units, organizations, and academic departments to aid in effective organizational functioning or to help with student concerns.
