Counseling is a process whereby those struggling with some aspect of life enter into a therapeutic relationship with a trained mental health professional in order to gain insight and make changes in life. The process may involve exploring thoughts, perceptions, reactions, behaviors, and emotions in order to better understand oneself. Counseling can assist in reducing feelings of stress and improve the ability to engage in healthy decision-making, and enhance relationships with others.
The Counseling & Wellness Center is available to students who struggle with such issues as relationships, grief & loss, depression, anxiety, resentment, major changes in life, anger, and many other emotionally difficult situations.
Counseling and case management services are scheduled by appointment only. To receive counseling or case management services students must complete and return a request for services form. Students can also pick up a form from one of the Counseling & Wellness Center staff. All forms can be returned to the Counseling & Wellness Center or student worker in Student Affairs.
