Individual CounselingCounseling Center

Sometimes, students need support to help sort through feelings, expectations, and alternatives that arise from academic or personal challenges of the college experience. The Counseling Center is not a place where ready-made answers or decisions are handed out. Rather, it is a place where students and counselors discuss concerns, and, in a safe, undemanding setting, work out a plan to deal with them. Some students resolve their concerns in one session, while others continue for several sessions.

Individual counseling provides an opportunity to explore any personal problem or concern. Often students' concerns involve issues related to:

  • relationships
  • identity
  • self-esteem and self-confidence
  • sexuality/gender identity
  • family
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • trauma
  • grief and loss
  • socialization and isolation
  • food and body image
  • substance use

Several of our therapists are also trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) and/or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Click here for further information on these treatment approaches.
