About Our Services

York County Community College offers individual counseling at no cost to actively enrolled students.  Brief, supportive counseling is available to help you process and manage personal events or situations that sometimes interfere with your ability to continue or complete your education.  With counseling, you have an opportunity to explore new ways of thinking and behaving to improve your chances to succeed in your social, academic and work life. 


For those who may feel the need for additional support, assessment and crisis management with referral is offered. 


Wellness looks to enhance the health of the whole person and through Counseling & Wellness, you will have additional opportunities throughout the year to engage in activities that will address and explore physical, emotional and mental health options, as well as learn more about specific topics related to mental well-being. 


I encourage you to take advantage of Counseling & Wellness during your academic career so that you learn lifelong practices to improve and maintain your health.


To schedule a meeting, please contact Penny Remick, Director of Counseling & Wellness at 216-4415 or email


The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Online Counseling

Hello Students,

We are now providing online telemental health services to you once the office is officially and temporarily closed, and in fact, I was working on this service to you for many months prior to the coronavirus challenge. 

The time-consuming piece for your protection is the ethical and legal considerations, which I'm happy to say were the cornerstone of the work beforehand...we have three documents on this page under the TELEMENTAL HEALTH section that will set you up to use this service.

Telemental Health Intake Form

The Intake Form is basic information needed to help set the stage for any work we might do now and going into the future.

Informed Consent Form

The most important form is the Informed Consent, which you must carefully read, sign and date before starting the service.  This explains the service, limits of confidentiality and more.

There is an ad in that section, also, which I encourage you to read.  While I created the form to advertise to online-only and ADA-related circumstances for online counseling, at this time, the service is open to all enrolled students due to our having to "stay in place" for health reasons. 

For Wellness, I will also be adding information to this Portal Page in Counseling & Wellness that I hope will bring you increased peace, joy and wellness for mind, body and spirit.

Sincerely, Penny Remick, Counselor
