    Counselors understand that it may be uncomfortable talking about yourself at first. Your counselor can help you start the conversation.

    Your contact with the counseling center will be confidential. This means that no information is shared with parents, faculty, or friends without your permission. However, there are several legally mandated exceptions to therapist-client confidentiality, including situations in which the client may be a danger to themselves or others and situations in which neglect or abuse of a child is suspected.
