Counseling for Personal Concerns

The Counseling Center provides confidential counseling services to help facilitate the personal, spiritual, and academic growth of our students. Counseling is available to help students explore strategies for managing problems and pressures in their personal lives. The Counseling Center operates under a brief therapy model, and appointments are available to currently enrolled students at no charge.

  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Discrimination/Harassment
  • Disordered Eating
  • Drug or Alcohol Misuse
  • Grief and Loss
  • Homesickness
  • Loneliness

College can be an exciting time in life, and can also be overwhelming. We believe that your personal and emotional growth during this time in your life is as important as your academic growth. When meeting with a counselor, students may come to discuss this normal growth. This is a great opportunity for you! Concerns brought to therapy may include:

  • Developing balance between academics and recreation ("work/life")
  • Developing deeper understanding of yourself and your reactions to events in your life
  • Learning to express your emotions effectively in order to deepen your relationships with others
  • Understanding and compassionately managing your personal shortcomings

If you're unsure whether counseling is right for you, schedule an initial appointment. There is no obligation to continue.
