The mission of Counseling Services is to assist students in pursuing their artistry, goals, and personal development toward a fulfilling Berklee experience. We accomplish this by offering a range of mental health services in an inclusive, affirming, and student-centered environment, rooted in compassionate and ethical care.
The Counseling Center holds confidentiality in the highest regard. Massachusetts state law and ethical guidelines for therapists require that student visits and all information shared during therapy sessions remain confidential. We cannot release information to anyone without the student's written permission. This includes friends, faculty, staff, and parents. Records of therapy sessions are kept in a secure electronic medical record. Exceptions to confidentiality occur only under special circumstances, such as being an imminent danger to self or others. A counselor will review these exceptions in detail at the initial appointment.
Consultation service is available to Berklee students, faculty, staff, and family members who are concerned about a Berklee student's mental health. Please call us at 617-747-2310 to leave a message with the counseling team.
