Counseling Services

Marist College Counseling Services is dedicated to the personal, interpersonal, and collective wellness of the campus community. Our mission is to provide information, services, and support with compassion, integrity, and efficiency.

We have shifted to our Summer Service Model in the Counseling Center. We are currently providing the following:

  • Consultation and Referral Services: We can assist students in connecting to providers close to home or with long-term, specialized options.
  • Limited short-term counseling: For students who are residing on-campus or in the surrounding area, or enrolled in on-site learning such as the PA and PT programs. Ongoing individual counseling, groups, and workshops will resume in the Fall 2021 semester.
  • Mental health emergencies: On-Call Services remain available for currently enrolled students residing on-campus or in the surrounding area, as well as for any Marist community member who has urgent concerns about a student. Please call our office during normal business hours (845)575-3314 or contact the Office of Safety & Security (845)471-1822 outside of business hours.
