Student Counseling Services
Support for students' emotional and mental wellness
Why seek counseling?
College students typically encounter anxiety and stress during the course of their educational experience. While college students cope successfully with these demands most of the time, there are times when they need or desire additional assistance. Typical concerns from students who seek assistance include:
- Personal Issues — Anxiety,depression, anger, disordered eating, low self-esteem, grief, alcohol/drug difficulties, military life.
- Developmental Issues — Identity development, individuation, stage of life issues, values clarification.
- Family Issues — divorce, family crisis, concerns from childhood or adolescence, parenting skills, and marriage preparation
- Relationship Issues — Roommate problems, romantic relationships, marital issues, and sexual concerns.
- Academic/Performance — Stress, study skills, time management, procrastination, test/performance anxiety, sport psychology.
All records are confidential. All communication between student and counselor will be held in confidence and will not be disclosed to any outside agency unless written authorization is given by the student or there is risk of imminent harm to self or others or reports of child or elder abuse.
