Connect at the Counseling Corner

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, fear of failure and more!

All of our counseling services are confidential and available to give you the help you need, when you need it. Our office is located in Student Academic Services (SAS), Room 232 and we are open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to noon and 1–5 p.m. year-round.

You connect at the Counseling Corner in one of the following ways:

By Text

Texting is available 24 hours per day with no appointment required. Text messages to 575.825.1978.

You can connect with our staff at the Counseling Corner 24/7 via a platform that you already use and trust: text. Reach out for any type of situation that you would need immediate emotional assistance. If you experience a delay during business hours (Mondays to Fridays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.), please be aware that our staff might be in a counseling appointment. They will get back to you as soon as they are available. We are also available via WhatsApp and IMessage. We take your privacy seriously and will take strict measures to keep our conversations confidential!
