Personal Counseling & Consultation Services

Personal Counselors are licensed mental health professionals who support and assist enrolled students as they cope with personal difficulties that are interfering with their academic progress. Personal counseling is confidential, short-term, goal-oriented, and free of charge. Personal counselors can assist students with referrals to outside services in cases where extended therapy or specialized assistance is required.

Some of the issues that students discuss with a personal counselor include:

  • feeling overwhelmed or stuck
  • depression or persistent sadness
  • anxiety/test taking anxiety
  • stress and time management skills
  • relationship issues or family concerns
  • difficulty adjusting to college
  • procrastination or motivation problems
