The Counseling Center

Counseling and Psychotherapy

Confidential individual and group counseling services are available by virtual or in-person appointment to all enrolled Pratt students. Licensed mental health professionals including psychologists (Dr. Caroline Kasnakian, Dr. Olga Poznansky, Dr, Josiane Moise, Dr. Pinchus Feintuch and Dr. Althea Maduramente) and clinical social workers (Jernee Montoya) provide and supervise all services. Pratt also consults with a psychiatrist to provide further evaluation for psychotropic medications for students in crisis. Crisis counseling is also available 24/7 by calling us at 718-687-5356. Reach out to us, we are here for you.

Scheduling an Appointment 

The Counseling Center Staff are operating remotely and in person, via secure telehealth sessions, video calls (Zoom) or phone calls and in-person appointments. All students can make consultation appointments for 9am-3pm EST, Monday - Friday. If you would like to make an appointment, please email therapy@pratt.edu or give us a call 718.687.5356

  • When requesting an appointment, please provide your current availability and Pratt student ID number 

  • You will need to complete your forms for your appointment in Pratt’s Student Health Portal, register at: https://pratt.medicatconnect.com/ 

  • Counseling services are open and free of costs to all matriculated undergraduate and graduate students

  • All services and communications are completely confidential

When you contact Counseling Services, you will be offered the earliest appointment available. Following an initial assessment, short-term individual therapy or group therapy with one of our staff therapists may be recommended; alternatively, a staff therapist may determine that your needs would be best served by a referral to an off-campus treatment provider. Our staff therapists will try their best to accommodate your service requests but ultimately must use their professional judgment to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you.

Crisis Counseling & Support After-Hours

Students who need crisis counseling, can contact us 24/7. During our normal office hours, you can reach us via email (therapy@pratt.edu) or by calling us. After hours crisis support is available by calling our main number 718.687.5356.
