Confidential psychological counseling and consultation services

The Faculty and Staff Assistance Program invites all faculty, staff, residents, postdocs and clinical fellows to use our confidential employee assistance services. These are provided at no cost. We are staffed by licensed psychologists and postdoctoral trainees who provide confidential, brief psychological counseling to individuals and a wide variety of consultation services to the organization.

FSAP currently conducts all therapy sessions via telemental therapy through a HIPAA-compliant platform or by phone.
