Counseling can help students . . .
While our counselors will NOT tell you what to do (or advise you), they do help you explore your options.
Important To Note
The information you share with a counselor will not be disclosed to anyone else (e.g., parents, faculty/staff, future employers, other agency, etc.) without your written permission. Exceptions include instances of suspected child or elder abuse or when students may harm themselves or others.
Some of the issues brought to the Center are short-term situations that become more
easily addressed after a few meetings with a counselor. At other times, the difficulties
run deeper and have been painful for a longer period of time. Regardless of the duration
or severity of your difficulty, counseling can provide the assistance or referral
