We provide therapy services for a wide array of groups including individuals, groups and couples.
Walk-in crisis counseling services are available weekdays from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. If you are experiencing a mental health emergency/crisis during operating hours please come in person to UCS and request to speak to a counselor. Crisis appointments are not a regular therapy session and are intended to be brief (most sessions last 15-20 minutes) and solution focused interventions addressing the crisis at hand. If it is after office hours students may contact VCU police at 828-1234 and ask to speak to a counselor.
University Counseling Services utilizes an apprenticeship model for training. The core elements of this model entail mentoring and a developmental approach to prepare psychologists who are generalists for professional practice as entry-level psychologists with intermediate to advanced skills.
University Counseling Services staff is available by telephone or by walk-in appointment to offer consultation to students, staff, and faculty to discuss students who are experiencing difficulties. Our staff is also available to provide workshops and presentations to the campus community during the academic year at no charge.
Studying in a foreign country is exciting but can also be a stressful experience. VCU Counseling Services provides a variety of services related to emotional and mental well-being, and teaches learning skills to facilitate VCU students’ academic and personal goals.
