Individual Counseling

Students seek counseling for many reasons, and counseling helps in many ways:

  • Adjusting to university life
  • Learning healthy ways to cope with stress
  • Enhancing personal relationships
  • Treatment for depression, anxiety, and substance use
  • Coping with crisis (including domestic violence and sexual assault)
  • Creating a balance in their lives
  • Clarifying educational plans and life goals
  • Psychiatric referrals

Students also come in to talk story or to find out how to help a friend .
