Counseling Services

College can generate academic, emotional, personal, social, and even financial concerns.  Although not uncommon, at times these concerns can make it difficult to succeed or function while at school. Counseling is an excellent way to address such concerns.

Updates for Fall 2019:

We have updated our emotional support animal and medical leave policies. Click below to view them.

Counseling provides a safe and structured environment in which students can explore various aspects of their emerging adult lives - independence, values, personal goals, intimacy and friendship.

Our professionally trained counselors work with students whose concerns range from the every day challenges of college life to more disruptive psychological issues. Students wondering whether their concerns are appropriate to bring to the Center are strongly encouraged to make an appointment to talk with one of our staff.

Crisis services

If you’re experiencing suicidal thoughts, are having trouble completing daily tasks, or are facing an acute stressor that threatens the safety of yourself or others, we’ll get you in for a same-day emergency appointment.
