Student Counseling

Welcome to Student Counseling Services

The mission of Student Counseling Services is to provide quality mental health interventions that enhance wellbeing and offer students a more meaningful and successful college experience. Collaborative partnerships are developed to assist students in making essential connections within the Division of Student Affairs and greater university community. Individual and group counseling is available to students who are having difficulty with emotional, behavioral, academic, or adjustment concerns. The collaborative counseling process is used to clarify problems, establish realistic goals and develop active, short-term treatment solutions.

Confidentiality Policy

All services are provided in a confidential and professional atmosphere. Student Counseling Services takes every reasonable precaution to protect the privacy of clients. The identity of those using our services, along with personally identifiable disclosures made in the course of the counseling relationship, is regarded as confidential. Information is not shared with parties outside Student Counseling Services without the expressed written consent of the client, or where law, regulations or emergency situations require it.

The staff at Student Counseling Services is committed to the affirmation of diversity in all of our endeavors. We recognize that differing ethnicities, cultures, sexual orientations, socioeconomic backgrounds, religious affiliations, ages, genders and abilities are important aspects of students' identities.
