Counseling Services

The Counseling Services staff seek to provide a welcoming and safe place for students.  We know college is a place of transition.  Whether a one-time visit or short-term counseling over several week, counselors have a desire to listen to students empathetically, and provide students encouragement and support. Students are assured confidentiality and counseling is provided by a licensed professional counselor or a master’s level social work graduate student.  All services are free for students. 

Counseling provides the opportunity for students to:

  • Focus on one’s mental well-being
  • Work through past struggles, loses, and current challenges. 
  • Set goals
  • Develop new habits and/or attitudes

At times, students are referred to community mental health agencies or support services in order for them to be better served.
