Student Counseling Services

Student Counseling Services

Our main focus is to care and support the emotional needs of students in a safe and confidential environment. Our services include working with students to explore issues of concern, process grief and trauma, examine the developmental changes while in college, be available when difficult issues arise, and other areas of psychological distress. We strive to offer high quality care in a safe place through individual or group therapy sessions. We partner with campus departments to provide outreach opportunities on a variety of mental wellness topics as well as help refer students to off-campus therapists. Stop by and see us today and know we are here to help.
