Student Counseling Services
Help and support for academic, personal challenges
Why seek counseling?
College students typically encounter anxiety and stress (i.e., academic, interpersonal, family, work, financial, etc.) during the course of their educational experience. While college students cope successfully with these demands most of the time, there are times when they need or desire additional assistance. Typical concerns from students who seek assistance include:
- Developmental/Family Issues — Fear and guilt, anger, frustration, family crisis
- Personal Issues — Anxiety, loneliness, depression, anger, guilt, low self-esteem, stress, lack of self-confidence, grief, alcohol/drug difficulties
- Relationship Issues — Roommate problems, boyfriend/girlfriend difficulties, marital issues, sexual concerns, pre-marriage counseling, sexual orientation
All records are confidential. All communication between student and counselor will be held in confidence and will not be disclosed to any outside agency unless written authorization is given by the student or there is risk of imminent harm to self or others or reports of child or elder abuse.
