Counseling Services

SHAC Counseling Services offers individual and group counseling, emergency/crisis counseling, LD/ADHD testing, medication evaluation and management, and consultation and outreach services.

Students interested in any of SHAC's counseling services are encouraged to walk-in to SHAC and consult with a counselor during daily walk-in hours. SHAC counselors will meet with students to determine appropriate next steps for care which may include: referral to another PSU support resource, referral to group counseling, a follow up appointment with SHAC Counseling Services, being placed on Counseling Service's waitlist for individual counseling, and/or referral to a community resource.

PLEASE NOTE: There are no Walk-In counseling hours 12/15-1/4. Crisis Walk-In services will still be available during this time. Normal Walk-In hours will start again 1/5.

How does Walk-in Counseling work?

Walk-in is on a "first-come, first-serve" basis, depending on need. Students are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early to complete initial paperwork. Please be aware that you may have to wait to be seen if there are students ahead of you. The consultation with a counselor should take between 20-30 minutes.

What if I am having an emergency?

If you are having an emergency and need to speak with someone immediately, come in to SHAC at ANY time during SHAC hours of operation (Monday-Thursday 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m.). After hours and weekends call the Multnomah County Crisis Line 503.988.4888.
