Individual Counseling

What it is

Counseling is a cooperative venture between the client and the counselor. The focus is on clarifying the concern, exploring options that may become evident to address the concern, and formulating realistic goals that can provide direction. Students interested in using Tuttleman Counseling Services for the first time or when in need of immediate assistance can come to Walk-In Clinic on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, from 10 AM to 1:30 PM, and on Wednesday from 9 AM to 12 PM.

No appointment is necessary.



Confidentiality is maintained in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. Except for the counselors at Tuttleman Counseling Services, no Temple faculty, staff or administrator has any access to student counseling records without written permission from the client, or in emergency situations as prescribed by law.


How it works

Students typically come in once per week for a 45 to 50-minute session, but may be seen more or less frequently depending on individual needs. The approach is generally short-term and problem focused.



All Temple undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students may use Tuttleman Counseling Services on a short-term basis. Counselors will also refer students to mental health resources on campus and in the city that are specific to their needs. There are no fees for any assistance provided by Tuttleman Counseling Services.
