The Counseling Service provides students with an opportunity to explore concerns and problems with a professional psychotherapist in a confidential setting. The college years are a time of accelerated growth, significant challenges and considerable stress. The Counseling Service is here to help you with the variety of concerns that arise during these intense years.
