The counseling faculty is here to assist you with concerns that often arise during the college years. Counseling is talking through your individual concerns with a professional counselor. Your concern may be specific and focused, or simply a general feeling of dissatisfaction or unhappiness. Some examples of such issues are: difficulties adjusting to college life, sadness over a loss, low self esteem, anxiety, depression, difficult interpersonal relationships, sexual concerns and loneliness. Should you need more specialized help, your counselor is prepared to make referrals to other professionals in the community.

As a client you have certain rights. These include the right to participate actively in developing alternatives for addressing your concerns. You are encouraged to ask questions about anything you don't understand.
