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 counselingservices@lemoyne.edu.
 

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:

 

 



One-on-One Meetings

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.
 

Consultation

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.

Consultation for Students

Are you concerned about a friend? Do you want to refer someone to counseling and don't know how? We are here to help students connect other students with resources that may help. Our staff can advise you on how to handle situations with a friend, roommate, or partner and give you tips and guidance on how to refer someone to counseling.

Services for Faculty & Staff

Consultation

Often times, faculty and staff are the first to notice that a student is in need of support. If there is a student that you are concerned about - maybe he or she doesn't seem themself, maybe they have had a sudden decline in their grades - we can help connect that student with the help he or she may need to thrive at Le Moyne College.

If you need some help getting the student in to see us, please call and one of our counselors will be happy to advise you. 

Outreach

Counseling center staff is available to come to your classroom to speak about any and all topics related to counseling or mental health. Although we are frequently utilized by Core classes, our services are available to the entire campus community. Some past topics we have presented on include: introduction to the counseling center, stress management, and helping other students in distress. Please call if you would like to arrange a presentation.


Parent and Family Services

If you have concerns about your son or daughter's overall happiness and well-being at Le Moyne, please contact us. Often, we can assist you in connecting the student with supports he or she may need in order to excel at Le Moyne.
