There are many reasons that people enter counseling. Often people come in saying that they are overwhelmed and stressed due to various life circumstances. Sometimes they have had recent or past life traumas, such as abuse, loss, or illness. Many times they begin therapy following a crisis, something that has turned their world upside down, like the addiction of a loved one, adultery, or witnessing a violent incident.
Counseling focuses on helping students function and develop in the stimulating and stressful environment of college and can assist with a variety of concerns. Our services are confidential, FREE, and are available to currently enrolled students. Office hours are 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.
Your first appointment will provide you with an opportunity to talk confidentially about your immediate concerns. The counselor will talk with you about some of the reasons you scheduled the appointment and will evaluate what services or resources will be most helpful for you. Some students find that talking with a counselor once is sufficient to resolve the immediate concern. If further services would be beneficial, these will be discussed and a recommendation will be made by the counselor.
