The Office of Counseling Services provides students with help and support to develop lifelong skills for personal growth and the successful management of conflicts and crises by offering them individual counseling and a variety of prevention and educational programs

Typical Issues Include:

A short-term counseling model is followed. Individuals wanting or needing long-term therapy may be referred to off-campus facilities in the community.
