Counseling Services Available
All appointments are confidential and available to enrolled students at no cost. We do not bill insurance. To book, call Counseling Services at (804) 752-7270 or email.
To prepare for your appointment, please complete the Appointment Questionnaire Monday – Thursday 7 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; Friday 7 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. to start the process before your on-campus appointment.
Please Note: Students should not pursue services at Counseling Services for the sole purpose of obtaining a letter of support for missing classes or for a medical withdrawal from classes. Counseling Services does not provide letters at the time of an initial consultation and cannot provide documentation regarding a student’s mental health without a history of services at Counseling Services during the specified time-period. If necessary, students are encouraged to seek letters of support from professionals directly involved in their care such as past or present psychological/psychiatric providers, or medical health providers.
Emotional Support Animal (ESA) policy: It is against the Code of Ethics of the American Counseling Association (ACA) for a counselor to recommend the use of an ESA “unless the counselor has specialized training and experience in working with human-animal bond in counseling such as would be outlined in the ACA AAT-C Competencies for Emotional Support Animals (ESAs) due to the potential risks involved for clients, the public, the counselor, and the animal.” None of the RMC counselors have this specialized training and, therefore, will not advocate for a student to obtain an ESA.
