Counseling Services

What can counseling do for me?
Counseling is what you make of it. By talking with a counselor you can work to understand yourself better, resolve problems, come to terms with important issues, or manage stress. The purpose of counseling is not to tell you what to do, but to emphasize the choices that are ultimately yours to make, and help you implement them.

What can I expect when I come in for counseling?
Being a college student isn’t easy. Balancing classes, friends, jobs, homework and family can be very stressful. At times, your life may seem to be overwhelming and confusing. At the counseling center a therapist will listen to you and help guide you through this difficult time. You will work together to better manage your stress.

How many times will I need to come in for services?
After an initial assessment, you and your counselor will decide on the number of sessions required to meet your goals.

Who will know that I am coming to the counseling center?
The counseling center operates under a strict confidentiality policy. All personal information collected is kept confidential. With very few exceptions, no information is given out to professors, parents, or anyone else without your written consent.
