College can be a time of great change and development in the life of a student. Counseling Services is available to assist you in navigating through some of the most stimulating and rewarding times you will experience. There are many times that a student is able to handle transitions and stress smoothly without much disruption in their lives. There may be times in a student’s life that there is a change that feels chaotic, out of control or overwhelming. Counselors see students for a variety of concerns and issues. They may range from mild distress to more serious psychological issues. The most frequent issues in college counseling are stress and time management, values clarification, alcohol and drug misuse, relationships, self-esteem issues, family concerns, disordered eating, depression anxiety.
The staff is prepared and available to assist you in addressing your needs. Although most services are provided on an individual basis, special focus groups and educational workshops may also be available to assist students in being successful and meeting goals.
We are committed to meeting the needs of all students regardless of race, culture, religion, socioeconomic status, gender, ability and sexual orientation.
