Professional Counseling

We are licensed counselors providing you with psychological support services to help you function more successfully during your time as a student at ENMU. We offer counseling for short-term transitional issues including depression, anxieties, phobias, relationship problems, anger management, financial stress, communication problems and fear of academic failure. If you are a student with chronic needs, you may be referred for outside help at the counseling staff's discretion. All of our services are free and confidential.
