How Do I Schedule an Appointment?

Due to current COVID-19 guidelines, all initial person-to-person interactions will be via video conferencing.

How this works:

  • Students can schedule a counseling appointment through email at omcknigh@ashland.edu.
  • Dr. McKnight or one of the professional counselors will email you to schedule an appointment.


Prior to your first remote session:

  • You will receive an email containing both informed consent and intake form to review and sign before your scheduled session.
  • At the beginning of your first remote session, we will review the informed consent.


At the time of or prior to the scheduled session:

  • You will receive an email link to join the online session.  You will enter your name in a pop-up box to check in to the "Waiting Room" until your session begins.

*Please note: If you encounter technical difficulties during an online counseling session, please email your counselor to determine the next steps.
