Psychological Services at El Camino College are provided through short-term Telemental Health psychotherapy visits.
In short-term psychotherapy, our psychologists help students address their emotional distress in a safe, nonjudgmental environment where you can explore possible solutions to your presenting concerns and develop more effective coping strategies.
Our services are confidential; include short-term individual psychotherapy, group workshops, off-campus resources and referrals, as well as short-term crisis intervention (for example, sudden job loss, relationship issues, grief). Students and their psychologists will work together to identify current needs and develop a plan for care which typically begin with our short-term Telemental Health visits.
Psychological Services at El Camino College are not intended to provide long-term therapy. If you are interested in long-term therapy, or need more intensive treatment, please make an appointment with us and we will help you find off-campus services that have the resources necessary for your specific situation.
