Counseling Center

Many students occasionally experience personal concerns, emotional distress or relationship difficulties. In such situations, it is often very helpful to speak with an objective, caring professional in order to get back on track and feel better. The Counseling Center offers free and confidential personal counseling and consultation to any currently enrolled student. While students may seek counseling for any number of reasons, common reasons include: stress, depression, relationships, anxiety, adjustment, body image, grief, trauma, substance abuse and identity.
