Welcome to Counseling Services

Dealing with depression, exploring relationship issues, adjusting to college life, working through life transitions, and developing study skills are common concerns among college students. Our professional counselors are trained to assist students, as well as faculty and staff, in examining and resolving these and other difficulties that might interfere with educational and personal success. The counselors offer individual, couple, family and group counseling as well as consultations and crisis intervention. These services are free and confidential.

Length of therapy varies, with a primary focus on short-term treatment directed at helping students function in a college environment. We do not have the capacity to manage chronic conditions requiring intensive or frequent contacts. If this short-term care model will not adequately meet students’ needs, your counselor will discuss referral resources.
