Counseling & Psychotherapy


We are here to help

We provide free and confidential personal, career, and educational counseling for a range of concerns.

Accessing services

To access counseling services, students will need to come to 306 Simmons Hall with their student ID for a brief, initial walk-in appointment with a counselor. Walk-in times are: 9:00a-11:00 a.m. and 1:00 – 3:30p daily except Thursdays. Thursday hours are from 1:00p – 3;30p. Since waiting times can vary, it helps if students are available during most of the walk-in period. Occasionally, counselor schedules are full due to a high volume of service provision. In those cases, students will be re-directed to the next available time that fits their schedule. During final exam weeks and over summer and winter breaks, you may call us at 330-972-7082 to schedule an intake appointment.

On the day of your intake, you will need to present your UA student ID to ensure that you are a currently enrolled student.  The counselor will obtain background information from you to determine the appropriateness of services at our Center, then assign you to a counselor on staff and/or make a referral to another service on or off campus.


All communication is held in strict confidence. All identifying information, including the fact that you have visited the Counseling and Testing Center, may be released to others only at your written request. The only exception is the unusual situation in which there is clear danger to yourself or to others.


There is no charge to eligible students except for fees associated with psychological assessment and nominal fees for career and psychological tests.
