Counseling Center

The Counseling Center IS open and will remain open (unless otherwise instructed) through the duration of the Spring 2020 semester. Students are welcome to continue to meet with their respective counselor face-to-face at their regularly scheduled appointment times. However, if students prefer, the Counseling Center is making remote services available through a tele-health portal known as VSee.  This internet-based program is secure, encrypted, and HIPAA compliant for privacy and confidentiality. If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Tim Morber at 330-471-8439 or via email at tmorber@malone.edu. Thank you!
