The Counseling Center offers a range of mental health services to students wanting help with personal concerns. Our staff specializes in the developmental issues and clinical concerns common to college students such as relationship and family issues, academic and personal stress, identity development and personal growth. Our services include outreach and presentation activities; individual, couples, and group therapy; as well as consultation to friends, faculty, and parents/guardians concerned about a student in distress. We respond to crisis situations by providing immediate intervention, stabilization and support. Students wishing to use our services can do so at no charge by calling for an initial assessment appointment. The Counseling Center is accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services, Inc.
