Welcome to the Kalamazoo College Counseling Center!

College can be stressful and we are here to help you! Many college students experience a wide range of emotions during their college experience, including excitement, sadness, homesickness, grief, identity concerns, and stress, and sometimes all at the same time. The Kalamazoo College Counseling Center offers a wide range of services including individual and group counseling, as well as outreach programming, and training opportunities. Please learn more about our services by exploring our website. In order to start individual services, please come to the counseling center and complete intake forms located on the computer in the lobby. A clinician will contact you within 48 hours to set up an initial appointment.

The Kalamazoo College Counseling Center is located on the 1st floor of Hicks West next to the Health Center. We are #12 on the campus map.

Scheduling Teletherapy Sessions During The COVID-19 Pandemic

During distance learning, students experiencing mental health symptoms may have access to teletherapy sessions with a therapist, if they are in the state of Michigan. Students who are out of state are encouraged to connect with local mental health resources, as the current law does not allow our therapists to provide ongoing teletherapy outside of their state of licensure. However, all students have access to brief, temporary consultative support via videoconference or phone to assess mental health needs, provide recommendations, help transition to a local provider or to access emergency mental health services. Counseling Center hours are M-F 8-5. Please email Dr. Ferguson at to schedule a teletherapy appointment. There are no session limits during fall and winter quarters.
