Because of limited resources, clients with problems requiring long-term counseling may need to be referred to an off-campus professional. Also, if a CSU counselor determines that a client’s needs exceed his or her ability to provide adequate services, we have an ethical responsibility to refer the student to another counselor. While CSU does not endorse or recommend any one particular counselor, we do maintain a list of local counselors who are qualified to meet your needs. However, the cost of off-campus counseling is strictly the responsibility of the student.
