Boston Institute for Psychotherapy
provides college counseling services at the
School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

The Counseling and Mental Health Service (CMHS) at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA) is a unique opportunity to reach out to the college-aged population and offer on-site, short-term counseling (6-8 sessions).

Program Philosophy
Our work is based on creating a safe environment in which students may explore the difficulties they are experiencing and behaviors that bring success.

Counseling Services
Many college students present with a number of unique developmental challenges. These issues can involve, among others:
  • Separation/Individuation
  • Sexuality and Sexual Identity
  • Peer and School Pressures
  • Drug and Alcohol Exposure
  • Onset of Psychiatric Illness

Intervention during this developmental time has long lasting, positive effects. Moreover, the counselors are there to advise Student Life staff concerning the best ways to support students and see students and staff in short term counseling. Referrals are made to the BIP as indicated, thereby offering full clinic services to the school. These services include:
  • On-Going Psychotherapy
  • Psychopharmacology
  • Group Therapy

BIP staff consults with the Office of Student Affairs and Advising at the SMFA to develop ways to support and identify at-risk students.
