What will happen at my first counseling session?

During the first counseling session, the counselor will ask a series of questions to help gauge your needs. You will not be asked in detail about your assault. A counseling session lasts between 45 minutes to 1 hour. At the initial appointment the counselor will discuss your goals in seeking help and set up your next appointment. Your counselor may provide you with referrals to get additional help.

To speak with a counselor about  setting up an appointment, contact STSM during normal business hours at (803) 790-8208 or on our 24 hour crisis hotline at (803) 771-7273.
