Frequently Asked Questions: Counseling FAQs

1. How do I go about getting services?

Services will be provided during office hours or by emailing maria.billings@eicollege.edu to schedule an alternate time.

2. Can a friend/relative come with me to the sessions?

You must be a currently registered EIC student to receive counseling services.

3. Will my professors/administrators know that I am coming to counseling or what I am discussing?

Information you reveal to the counselor will remain confidential within the limits of the American Psychological Association’s ethical standards and the law. In general, the counselor cannot discuss your situation with anyone unless you have given written permission to release information. However, there are certain situations in which confidentiality must be broken and information must be reported to the appropriate person or agency. These situations are as follows: if what you share indicates you are imminently in danger of harming yourself or others; if what you share reveals evidence of child or elder abuse or neglect; or if we receive a court order or subpoena.
