Counseling Appointments

How To Make An Appointment Or Refer A Student

Students may self-refer by calling Counseling and Accessibility Services at (678) 359-5585 or by emailing our counselor, Alison Boddie, at alisonb@gordonstate.edu directly. Students who call or email after hours should be contacted within 48 business hours. 

Faculty or staff may verbally refer a student for counseling services or they may walk with them to the Counseling office.

Students should arrive early, but no more than 5 minutes, for their appointment. Appointments/sessions generally last about 50 minutes. If you are going to be over 15 minutes late or need to reschedule, please call or email to reschedule as soon as possible. We offer counseling appointments both in-person and telecounseling for the convenience of the student.

E-mail is not an appropriate medium for engaging in personal counseling and relaying other private information. Thus, e-mail cannot be used to initiate therapeutic conversations. Unfortunately, e-mail is not always confidential and cannot be guaranteed to be an effective or timely means of communication. The Counseling Center does not communicate confidential information by e-mail. E-mail is only used for the purpose of scheduling an appointment. If you are in an urgent situation, it is always best to call the main number for the Counseling Center (678) 359-5585 for assistance, or call 911 in an emergency.
