Consistent with Gonzaga University's philosophy of developing the whole person, the Counseling Center's core purpose is to enhance the emotional, relational, and psychological well-being of students. We strive to facilitate students' personal growth and enhance their academic success through accessible, culturally congruent counseling and outreach services.
There's a lot of good to be said about going to college. You come to Gonzaga University with dreams and expectations about your future. You have a whole new world to explore and enjoy.
We all would like to manage these expectations with a minimal amount of stress. At times, some students may find the pressures and transitions of college difficult to handle. Some may find themselves dealing with uncertainty and stress by using poor coping strategies that may even compound their problems.
Additionally, emerging-adulthood is a time of profound developmental change. College students are challenged with a number of important tasks:
- Developing an integrated sense of self
- Forging respectful and enduring relationships with other people
- Forming a realistic sense of personal and intellectual strengths and weaknesses
- Discovering individual meaning and purpose in life.
The Counseling Center contributes to Gonzaga University by offering a wide range of psychological counseling, career counseling, and consulting services to members of the community. As psychologists and counselors, we are committed to the standards of our professions and endeavor to provide the best service possible to all those who seek our assistance.
We respect the dignity and worth of all students as growing and developing individuals with unique perspectives and contributions to make. We work cooperatively with faculty, staff, administrators, and parents toward promoting the growth of students during their college years.
We invite you to visit the Counseling Center. We are located in a house at 324 E. Sharp, just off the corner of Sharp and Astor. The house is directly in between Dooley Hall and the English Annex. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have regarding our services or for making an appointment. We can be reached at (509) 313-4054 and/or firstname.lastname@example.org.
