Individual Counseling

Counseling 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 on a regular basis for several weeks.

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
  • family
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • victimization
  • grief and loss
  • socialization and isolation
  • food and body image
  • chemical use
