Students often deal with issues that vary from feeling too much pressure, stress and lack of sleep to depression, anxiety or family problems. The counseling center is here for all those needs and many more.
They are confidential! Anything shared will stay confidential within the patient and the therapist. No one has access to it including, parents, coaches, and teachers.
Students get up to ten confidential individual sessions per year. The center also offers group counseling and couples therapy and these do not count towards a student’s ten free sessions.
The counseling center also has a great series of psycho-educational workshops called Discovering Yourself. These take about fifty minutes and the topics range from procrastination, test anxiety, getting good sleep and other useful topics aimed at improving college life.
They also offer consultation services to parents, faculty, and staff and they have information on Outreach and Educational programming.
