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

Faculty and Staff Referral Form

Counseling Referral Form

The purpose of the counseling referral is to provide students with individual help, support, and intervention to be successful as a student. This form is a vehicle by which faculty/staff can document their observations of students about whom they are concerned.

**It is guaranteed referred students will be contacted by a counselor; however, counseling sessions are on a voluntary basis for students.**

Students with disabilities, like all students at the College, must adhere to the provisions of the Student Code of Conduct.  They must meet the College’s performance requirements and will be held to the same behaviors as all other students. If you have questions please contact Accessibility Resources Office.
