Below is a list of off-campus therapists located in the Geneseo area, many of whom are within walking distance of campus (as indicated). The list below is only a partial selection of area providers; if you would like to speak with a counselor about additional options within the Greater Rochester area, please give our office a call at 585-245-5716. For more information about the different types of professionals listed, you might also want to visit our What Do Those Degrees Mean? page.
When contacting these providers, keep in mind that you might reach voice mail; be prepared to leave a message. When you speak with the therapist, be prepared to say a little about your concerns. You may also want to ask about fees and about what kinds of health insurance they will accept if you are planning to use insurance. (It is hepful to consult ahead of time with your parent, partner, or employer about the name of your health insurance and whether there are specific procedures you must use to get mental health treatment--e.g., do you need "prior approval"?). If you do not have insurance and will need to pay for this yourself, some providers have a "sliding fee scale" which sets a fee based upon your income and other variables.

We suggest that you contact your health insurance company to inquire whether you have any coverage for the assessment. Although our department does work with students who have AD/HD and related concerns, Health & Counseling does NOT conduct any formal AD/HD or LD testing. However, please be aware that if you wish to receive medication for AD/HD through our office, we may require you to either 1) obtain current AD/HD assessment, or 2) provide documentation from prior AD/HD assessment.
