Counseling Services

Counseling & Psychological Services offers a variety of counseling services for currently enrolled KSU students. Please see our FAQ page for answers to our most common questions and to review our Confidentiality policy. For additional resources, visit our Self-Help and Education page. 

Please note that per Georgia Law, students under the age of 18 will need parent/guardian consent in order to receive counseling services.  

Deciding which services best fits your needs begins with a Let's Hoot Initial Consultation.  During this meeting, the student and counseling therapist determine which services would be most helpful to you.  Potential options can include a referral to a group, brief individual counseling, or referral to a community provider.  Our counseling services are free to currently enrolled students attending classes in the current semester.  Clinical Service options include:
