  • BC counselors are here to listen and help you move towards your goals.
  • It’s okay to be nervous.
  • All counseling services are culturally responsive and social justice oriented. Counselors are non-judgmental, listen while supporting your decision-making, and advocate on your behalf.
  • All interactions with a counselor are confidential.
    • Ethically, counselors cannot and will not share anything you say during counseling appointments with anyone outside of the counseling center. There are a few safety and other related exceptions to confidentiality that your counselor will discuss with you during your appointment.
  • All students will complete a brief informed consent and preliminary counseling paperwork. What, and how much of this paperwork you choose to complete is completely voluntary.
  • Read our FAQs for more information on what does the initial session look like?

Your feedback is important to us. If you have recently met with a BC counselor, please take a few minutes to complete an anonymous evaluation of your session
