The Counseling Center provides students access to a wide range of treatment modalities and referrals to outside resources as needed. Many students face normal developmental concerns as well as personal and academic pressures during their college experience and find that it is helpful to discuss these issues in a supportive, professional and confidential environment. Often, personal problems such as anxiety, depression, and lack of coping skills (to name a few) may present and hinder academic growth and success. Students who recognize these problems may use the Counseling Center to learn and/or enhance skills to deal more effectively with problems that may be interfering with academic success and personal well being.
