The Student Health and Counseling Center is open for student appointments on Monday, January 8, 2024, the first day of classes winter term.
The Counseling Center is once again available to offer the option of both telehealth and in-person sessions.
To be eligible for counseling services, you need to have paid the Health Service Fee, and be in the state of Oregon at the time of your appointment (as our counselors are licensed/registered to practice therapy only within Oregon). For our telehealth appointment option, we will be using Zoom’s HIPPA-secured platform for these sessions.
We are offering counseling appointments BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. To access counseling services, call 541.962.3524 (or email firstname.lastname@example.org) and let the person at the front desk know that you would like to see a counselor. Please specify if you would like an in-person or telehealth appointment. (Please note that if you are or have recently been sick, then your first appointment will be offered via telehealth, and you can discuss the method of further appointments with your counselor.) Your information will be forwarded to the counselors and someone will get back to you. We look forward to connecting with you however you choose to have your appointment.
Please be aware that Counseling Center staff does not routinely access phone messages or email during non-business hours, and cannot guarantee an immediate response. Therefore, do not use phone messages or email to communicate emergency or urgent needs. If you have an after-hours emergency, please call 911, or the Center for Human Development (CHD) at 541-962-8800.
The information above reflects current Counseling Center services until further notice. All other information on this website may or may not be reflective of current practice. If you have any questions or concerns, please call 541.962.3524.
Students come to the Counseling Center for a variety of reasons. Some are looking for help in coping with the pressures associated with a challenging academic environment or adjustment to college life. Others want to learn how to be more effective in developing, negotiating, or maintaining relationships with others. Counseling can be beneficial for students who are feeling depressed or anxious, as well as those who want to examine their beliefs or explore their current life situation.The Counseling Center offers students the opportunity to look at themselves and their environment and to change the way they think, feel, and behave so that they can make the most of their time at EOU. Our Counseling Center services are available to students who have been assessed the Health Service Fee. Some students who have not automatically been assessed the Health Service Fee may “opt in.” Please talk with the Student Health and Counseling Center front desk for more information.
The Counseling Center staff care deeply about the well-being of EOU students. We affirm the dignity, worth, and value of all individuals. We desire to create and hold space for students so they can explore, unpack and live out the very essence of who they are. To accomplish this, we commit to an ongoing process of learning that enables us to provide services that are sensitive to students’ diverse experience of themselves in their world. We humbly acknowledge the original inhabitants of the land Eastern Oregon University is upon: the Cayuse, Umatilla, Walla Walla, and Nez Perce people. We celebrate their traditions, languages, and stories. We acknowledge their continuing connection to this land, water, and community and pay our respects to these original stewards of Northeastern Oregon.
