Counselor in Housing

Students living in University Housing have priority access to an on-site mental health therapist.

Christina Tompkins, the Counselor in Housing, is dedicated to supporting on-campus Housing residents. In addition to mental health counseling, Christina can provide guidance on conflict mediation between roommates, and connect residents to other support programs and services.

Housing residents can receive brief individual and couples therapy, as well as participating in a variety of counseling groups that meet throughout the week.  All of these services are covered by the health fee paid at registration each semester.

Counseling sessions are confidential and are held either in person in Sequoia or via Zoom.
