Available Services

Mental Health Counseling

Seeking out mental health counseling is an act of bravery and shows that you are taking an active role in your self-care. We are glad you are here!  

Counseling is a collaborative process requiring active participation. Counselors help to navigate issues, identify resources, look at problems from a new perspective, or develop skills that help students find solutions on their own. Our counselors are licensed professionals with extensive education and clinical experience.

Students come to counseling for a variety of reasons, both academic and personal. Some common topics include:

  • Anxiety or depression
  • Deciding whether or not to stay in school
  • Relationship problems
  • Coping with stress
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Difficulty in class
