To schedule an appointment, call a counselor. If we are not available, please leave a message, and we will return your call as soon as possible.

Counseling sessions are scheduled for 50 minutes. Your appointment time is held exclusively for you. It is important to be on time because your appointment will not be extended if you arrive late. If you are unable to keep your appointment for any reason, please give at least 24 hour advance notice so that another student may use the time. If you miss an appointment without providing 24 hours advance notice, it will count as one of your 15 appointments and you will need to call to schedule or confirm any future appointments.

Please note, should you choose to email the counselors below, that counselors cannot guarantee the confidentiality of electronic communication. Electronic communication should not be used for emergency or urgent situations as counselors may not frequently check email and thus not respond immediately. Please call or come to the office during our office hours if you have an urgent or emergency situation. After hours please contact campus security at 206.726.5038 or the Seattle Crisis Line at 1.800.621.4636.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Counseling Office at Cornish College of the Arts is to assist students with their academic and artistic pursuits by providing supportive counseling, referrals and outreach programs that promote students’ mental health and emotional well being.


During the counseling process, students have up to 15 counseling appointments available to them per academic year. The Counselors also provide crisis intervention, consultation and referral to community resources. The frequency of appointments, methods and duration of services are determined by the needs of each student.

In your first meeting, you can expect your counselor to listen and help you explore your concerns. With the counselor you can discuss possible ways to reach your goals. At the end of your counseling session, you may decide to make another appointment to continue working together or the counselor may refer you to a community resource.


Among the theoretical orientations used by the Cornish Counselors are developmental, cognitive behavioral, gestalt, Rogerian, and brief solution-focused counseling. To enhance their work with students, Cornish Counselors participate in professional consultation.

Records & Confidentiality

All counseling communication is confidential. A record of services provided and student contacts is kept in a locked file cabinet in the Counseling Office. Your Counselor cannot disclose any information you have shared unless:

  • you give written consent;
  • there is a risk of imminent harm to self or others;
  • it is required under court order;
  • it is required by federal or state statute;
  • in cases of possible child or elder abuse or neglect; or
  • if you are HIV positive and putting uninformed sexual partners at risk.


There is no fee for counseling services at Cornish College of the Arts.
