Professional Counseling

We want your college experience to be memorable because you made friends, gained knowledge and were plugged in on campus. We don't want you to look back on college as a time where you felt overwhelmed or isolated and didn't know where to look for help. To serve you we provide licensed counselors equipped to help you deal with short-term issues like depression, anxiety, phobias, relationship problems, anger management, communication problems and fear of failure. We also provide confidential assistance for students who have been the victims of sexual assault.

All of our services are free and confidential. We see students by appointment and for after hours we have 24/7 crisis counseling. If you have on-going needs we may refer you for outside help.

Eight Dimensions of Wellness

We know that mental health is a complex and important part of your holistic health. When talking about mental health we focus on eight factors that affect your mental health. We call these the Eight Dimensions of Wellness.
