If you are interested in pursuing any of our counseling services, please come by our office or call (727) 873-4422 (option 2) to make an appointment.


All currently enrolled students at USFSP are eligible for counseling and psychological services. Within ethical and legal guidelines, students can be assured of privacy and professional treatment. Staff members in the Center are licensed and experienced mental health professionals from the disciplines of counseling and clinical psychology. Psychological trainees, under the supervision of licensed professionals, also provide services in our center.

Counseling services are primarily appointment based, but we can also offer some walk-in services for urgent needs or emergencies; 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.

The Center cannot provide excused absences for medical or psychological illnesses.

What to expect on your first appointment?

You will be asked to arrive 20-30 minutes before your first appointment to fill in paperwork. If you do not allow for this extra time, you will be rescheduled. A counselor will speak with you and collect information about your present concern and relevant background history.  Upon completion of the initial assessment, treatment recommendations will be made based on the needs of the student and the resources of the Center. Students whose needs fall outside the scope of our services are assisted with appropriate referrals to community resources.
