Hillel now offers free private and confidential counseling sessions with our licensed therapist, provided in partnership with Jewish Family Services Association of Cleveland. Students can sign up for hour-long sessions with our counselor for in-person or online sessions.

Counseling is a safe and supportive space to navigate life’s challenges, learn more about yourself, build coping skills, and deepen your relationships. Some common concerns that might bring you to therapy include: anxiety, depression, stress, grief and loss, relationship challenges, identity questions, sexuality, perfectionism, and/or career concerns.

Parents, faculty, staff, and peers can refer students to counseling services. Due to confidentiality laws and policies, we cannot schedule an appointment for a student by a third party. A student who wishes to receive counseling services at Hillel must request services directly. If you wish to help a student, you are welcome to accompany a student to our office, or accompany the student while making a phone call to schedule an appointment.
