Counseling Services for Students
Six free counseling sessions: If you are a current student and feeling the need for professional counseling, the seminary will provide up to six free counseling sessions. The first step in the process is for the student to download the Counseling Center Verification Form (available on myGETS). The next step in the referral process is to contact Dean Mosby at firstname.lastname@example.org to procure a digital signature on the Counseling Center Verification Form. A list of professional counselors is available on myGETS, along with a picture and short introduction of the scope of the work and practices of the provider. Choose a provider from the list of Pastoral Counselors in the Chicago Area and set up an appointment. Take the Counseling Center Verification Form (with the requisite signature from Dean Mosby) with you to your first session. If the student encounters problems, they should notify Dean Mosby as soon as possible. An additional option is for students to contact outside counselors at their own expense.
During this time, Dean Karen Mosby will remain available via her Garrett email (email@example.com) and will be checking her email throughout the day. Students may continue to contact Dean Mosby by email to schedule a time to talk by phone or in person. If immediate assistance is needed by phone, she can be reached at (224) 656-4608.
