Services Offered

Counseling Services are staffed with trained clinicians who are compassionate and willing to help explore your concerns and develop ideas for effectively dealing with a situation. We offer in-person and teletherapy sessions. We create individualized plans addressing the needs of each student. We offer the following types of Counseling Services: short-term Individual Counseling, Psychoeducation workshops & drop-ins, Crisis Intervention, Group Counseling, Alcohol and Drug Counseling, and referral services to on-campus supports/resources and off-campus referrals to community partners to address mental health and substance abuse wellness needs.


What to Expect

  • Effective counseling that matches your theory of change
  • Therapy that is designed to equip you with long-term solutions rather than a quick fix.
  • A collaborative approach between you and your counselor to help meet your goals
