The Counseling Center
Counseling and Psychotherapy
The Counseling Center provides currently enrolled Pratt students confidential and free short-term individual and group psychotherapy, assessment, consultation, and referrals to outside providers. We are staffed by licensed psychologists and clinical social workers, who specialize in working with young adults and have a wealth of experience in college mental health. In addition, a consulting psychiatrist is available for psychotropic medication evaluation.
We offer daily appointments (M-F) for both in-person and virtual/remote sessions and we are available 24/7 if you have an urgent concern and need to speak to someone.
We can be reached by phone at (718) 687-5356 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com 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.

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