Our Services

Free confidential counseling is available to enrolled, degree-seeking Knox College students. 

Your right to privacy is fully protected, and counseling is strictly confidential as provided by state law. If you are needing your personal information supplied to a psychologist or Knox official, a Release of Information form must be signed. Counseling records are not a part of your academic or medical records.

We provide the following services:

  • Individual Counseling: We offer short term individual counseling. The counselor and student will work together to determine the best method of care for the student's concerns.
  • Group Counseling: Every term we offer a variety of group options for our students. This is a way for students to grow with fellow students who have similar experiences. 
  • Crisis Counseling: There are times when a student is in crisis and needs immediate assistance. Students are encouraged to call Counseling Services during office hours during times of crisis. See Crisis Sessions for more information. 
  • Outreach: Our staff is available to provide outreach programs on a wide variety of topics to the Knox community. See our Upcoming Events page for more info. To request an outreach event, please complete the online Outreach Request Form. Please submit requests a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the event date.
  • Consultations: We are available to faculty, staff, and students for consultations regarding how to best assist a student. On or off campus referrals are also available.
  • Advocacy Session: We offer students who have questions regarding the Title IX process or are a survivor of sexual assault, the opportunity to speak to a trained sexual assault advocate, in a confidential setting.
