The Counseling Center provides you with a supportive environment where you learn how to gain insight into your feelings, cope with difficult situations and achieve your goals.
Together, you and a counselor can identify effective strategies to cope with feelings and issues that seem beyond your control.
Some people who seek counseling may be nervous, but we believe that knowing when to ask for help is a sign of courage.
Below are some common concerns that bring students to counseling:
- Symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression
- Chronic illness
- College adjustment issues such as homesickness, academic problems or test anxiety
- Interpersonal difficulties, including family problems or relationship concerns
- Challenges with assertiveness and self-confidence
- Bereavement and grief related to a major loss (such as death or divorce)
- Questions about identity, self-image, sexuality or gender
- Religious or spiritual issues

- Experience with sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, abuse or other trauma
- Thoughts of suicide, death or hurting others
- Harmful behaviors like drug or alcohol abuse or self-harm (cutting, burning, etc.)
