The goal of Counseling Services is to provide you with a safe, confidential, and supportive environment for you to discuss life concerns, challenges, and opportunities. College life, while exciting and fruitful, can also be difficult and trying. You do not need to be in crisis to benefit from counseling services. We see many students each year seeking help with issues similar to yours. Personal counseling is available for help with transitioning to college, coping with college life, fear of failure, feelings of loneliness, anxiety, depression, academic concerns and many other areas. The counseling process is about problem solving, expansion of awareness and coping skills, and personal growth. The more you actively participate in your overall well-being and care the better.
