Counseling Frequently Asked Questions

How much does counseling cost?
Short-term counseling services are free for credit students.
Can I get medication?
The SCC counselor is not a psychiatrist and cannot prescribe medication. The counselor can refer you to an off-campus psychiatrist if you feel the need to see a psychiatrist. Please note that SCC does not pay for these psychiatric services; however, the counselor will discuss with you treatment options within your financial limits.
How long is a counseling session?
Each session typically lasts about 45-50 minutes. Shorter sessions are available for those who want to simply explore the possibility of counseling.
How long do people stay in counseling?
The college offers short-term, solution-focused therapy. You may want one session or several sessions. You may want to come weekly, or may want some other schedule, depending on your circumstances and issues. The counselor will work out with you an arrangement that best meets your needs.
Will my parents be informed that I am seeing a counselor?
No. They will only be informed if you want them to be and have signed a written release form allowing the counselor to speak to them. The only exception is if you are a danger to yourself or others.
