Students in the Center for Allied Health Programs have both a Academic Advisor and a Faculty Advisor.

Advisors provide consultation, support, mentoring, and recommendations to students including resources outside of the program (Disability Resources, Counseling, Boynton Health Services, etc.).

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.

Individual Therapy: Before you can be seen for individual therapy, we will need to meet for a brief consultation to assess what you are needing help with and to make sure that short-term counseling is a good fit for you. To schedule a brief consultation appointment, please click here to fill out the intake forms. Click on the intake forms for Pharm/CAHP/PT students. Before you can fill out the intake forms, you will be prompted with a message that reflects that my online calendaring system is not up yet, please click on "continue anyway" to proceed. The front desk will schedule you after you have completed the intake forms. Beginning October 23rd, new students will be scheduled with me for a brief consultation appointment. Online scheduling will be available soon and stay tuned for updates.   

Let's Talk: I will be available 9am-11am on Fridays via Zoom for Let's Talk. Let's Talk is a drop-in service where I listen to specific problems, provide support, help explore solutions and give information about other resources. Please follow this link to learn how to get started: Let's Talk!
