Why Seek Counseling?

College is a unique developmental time. Students are challenged with forming their identities, making critical life decisions, living away from home and adjusting to the demands of college. These challenges, although exciting, can be stressful. Pre-existing mental health difficulties are often exacerbated and many students experience depression or anxiety for the first time. Students do not need to struggle alone with these challenges. We encourage students to take advantage of the center’s support. Students come to see us for a variety of reasons including:

Adjusting to College Abuse Academic Difficulty
Anxiety Compulsive Behavior Death and Grief
Depression Family Issues Harassment
Loneliness Low Self-esteem Relationship Issues
Sexual Assault Sleep Issues Stress
Substance Use Suicidal Thoughts Trauma
