Summer Services at the Counseling Center

The Counseling Center remains open for remote services during the summer break (May 17-Sept. 3, 2021). Hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. To adhere to public health guidelines, individuals are not permitted to enter the Counseling Center without prior authorization from our staff. Please call 410-617-2273 to schedule an appointment or speak with a member of our staff for details. If the University is closed for holidays or inclement weather, the Counseling Center will also be closed.

Available remote services include: (1) Let’s Talk—a solution-focused, goal-oriented, one-time space for students to meet with a counselor around a specific concern or problem, (2) Assessment and recommendations, (3) Short-term individual therapy, (4) Comprehensive Referral Support, (5) Consultation with students, parents, and campus partners.

Please note that only students enrolled in summer courses at Loyola are eligible for individual therapy during the summer months. In addition, due to state licensing laws, only students residing in Maryland, or states where Counseling Center clinicians hold temporary licensure, are eligible for individual therapy services. Students seeking treatment over the summer, but not enrolled in summer courses at Loyola and/or not residing in an eligible state, are encouraged to contact the Counseling Center to discuss their counseling needs. All Loyola students are eligible for supportive bridge care and referral assistance. The Counseling Center remains committed to supporting the emotional well-being of our students.

Incoming first-year students, transfer students, and/or their families, are also encouraged to contact the Counseling Center to consult about treatment options for the upcoming academic year, if needed.

Counseling Center Statement on Ongoing Racial Injustice and Violence

The Counseling Center joins the rest of the Loyola community in expressing our grief, sorrow and compassion for the racial injustices and tragedies that have been occurring across our nation. These events have impacted all of us and reflect a longstanding and entrenched history of structural and systemic injustice and racism that we condemn and are dedicated to addressing. 

We would like to recognize the reports of hate crimes experienced by the Asian community - particularly in light of COVID-19, locally and nationally. In the aftermath of experiencing or witnessing this trauma, it is normal to experience a range of feelings and emotions, such as shock, fear, sadness, anger, helplessness, or guilt. 

Please consider Racial Violence & Injustice resources for people of color and those seeking to promote anti-racism and engage in allyship. You can also find additional resources on Anti-racism and White Accountability and from the Office of Equity and Inclusion

Students may contact us by phone to speak with a counselor or schedule an appointment, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., at 410-617-2273. For support outside our business hours, please call 410-617-5530 to speak with an after-hours counselor. 

Loyola Counseling Center Land Acknowledgement

The staff at the Counseling Center humbly acknowledges and honors the Indigenous communities whose ancestral homelands and resources were stolen and colonized in the creation of this nation, state and campus. We recognize the Piscataway, Nanticoke and Lumbee as past, present, and future caretakers of this land.

A land acknowledgement is a small and insufficient step towards correcting the narrative and injustice of colonialism both past and present. While this small act will never erase the atrocities that have been endured by Indigenous peoples both locally and around the world, it is a part of our ongoing commitment to uplifting the sovereignty of Indigenous communities. We are therefore committed to resisting the oppression that takes many forms, including the attack on mental health, threat to the environment, and continued violence caused by systems of racism.

The Counseling Center is excited to offer new drop-in support space(s) for students:

Let’s Connect Now: drop in affinity spaces for BIPOC students and LGBTQIA+ students.
