Counseling Center

Welcome to the Counseling Center

The Counseling Center is here to help students make the most of their university experience, both personally and academically. 

The Counseling Center offers counseling, self-help resources, referrals to private care, workshops, and discussion groups to help students gain the skills and insights they need to overcome adversity and thrive in their life and learning. Any student with a concern they would like to discuss is welcome. For example, students come to the Counseling Center with concerns about their relationships, health, happiness, motivation, behaviors, stress, trauma, or life decisions. Meeting with a clinician is a chance to explore one's hopes and fears, and determine possible courses of action or resolution in a respectful and confidential setting

For more information, browse the rest of our site. The About Us section has information about our staff, confidentiality, and FAQs. Or call x3500 and arrange to speak with a clinician.
