Counseling Center

CounselingWe are here to help students cope with personal and academic concerns.

Counseling offers the opportunity to talk in a confidential setting. When students are faced with excessive stress or difficult personal problems, professional support may be helpful, or necessary.

Therapy focuses on the client's perspective and therapists respect the client's values and self determination. With this in mind, the therapist can support the client and help him or her come to realizations and work through issues that may seem overwhelming to deal with on their own.

Below are some of the areas that we can assist you with:

  • Alternative Lifestyles

  • Individual and Group Counseling
  • Physical and Psychological Abuse Counseling
  • Problems with: Anxiety, Confusion, Depression, Loss, Relationships, Stress & Self-esteem
