Coping with COVID-19 update
Le Moyne Counseling Services is aware that all members of our campus community are currently being impacted by general distress related to coronavirus (COVID-19). Although the situation remains fluid and changing, our plan is to respond to whatever changes occur.
**We are now offering both in-person and Zoom appointments. To schedule an appointment, please call the office at 315-445-4195 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The current protocol for in-person sessions at the Counseling Center are as follows:
**If you schedule an in-person appointment and are experiencing ANY cold or allergy like symptoms, you will need to reschedule your appointment to a Zoom format: any symptoms should be reported to the COVID team.
Please ring the Counseling Office bell to announce your arrival. Only the scheduled student will be permitted to enter at the time of the appointment. We will not be able to accommodate early arrivals.
Provide proof of negative COVID results in the last week (NAVICA app expires 1 week after rapid test).
Be prepared to show you Campus Clear Badge prior to entry. Masks are required, two masks are preferred per CDC recommendation and if necessary, a second mask will be provided upon request. We may ask that you wear a clear mask at some point during your visit.
Counseling sessions will be limited to 45 minutes to allow ample time for cleaning and airing out of office space, and to allow for safely distanced arrival/departure of each appointment.
If you test positive within 72 hours following your appointment in the Counseling Center, you will need to report any in-person interactions with a case investigator and to the Counseling Center Office.
*If there are over a certain number of COVID cases in your housing area on the day of your appointment, you will have the option of a Zoom session or rescheduling your appointment for a later date.
Below is a list of resources compiled to help with the natural range of emotions that arise when there is a public health situation.
For coping with anxiety and other symptoms:
Probably the most frequently used service of the center is individual meetings with the counselors. Students come in for a variety of reasons to confidentially talk with a trained professional. We offer a number of types of interviews for one-on-one personal exploration or individual counseling.
Discussion and Support Groups
Groups in our Center involve a small number of students coming together. Students can come to talk, or just listen. Students in a group generally feel that they themselves benefit by being of help to others who are dealing with similar issues, and they feel comforted by knowing that others are dealing with issues similar to their own.
The staff of the Wellness Center for Health and Counseling is available to consult with students, faculty, staff, or parents to share any student concern. Within the consultation relationship, the consultee and the Center staff member work together to understand the issue(s) or problem(s) and to collaboratively work toward a solution. The center staff consult with members of the campus community about a wide array of issues including:
- dealing with difficult people such as roommates, classmates, coworkers, and supervisors;
- managing crisis situations in the classroom or residence hall;
- locating campus and community services;
- helping emotionally disturbed or addicted friends or family members.
