Academic Advisors are experts in University and program academic processes and policies. We work with students on progression, scheduling, academic issues, and referrals to University resources. To schedule an appointment with an academic advisor, please email them directly or email CAHP Student Services at [email protected]. Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisors regularly. 
Faculty Advisors are assigned to students during or after the orientation experience. Check your MyU Portal to see which faculty member is assigned to you.

I will be offering short-term counseling and referrals for additional services or support for students within the programs of Pharm/CAHP/PT.  These services are offered at no additional cost to students and no health insurance is billed for services through SCS.  All short-term counseling services are private and confidential. 

If you are interested in setting up an appointment with me to see if short-term counseling is a good fit for you or to receive referrals for additional supports and services on campus or in the community, please use one of the following steps to get started: Use the following link to complete intake forms with the SCS office and make sure to note in the intake forms that you are a Pharm/CAHP/PT student and you will be scheduled with me: Getting Started | Student Counseling Service
