Individual Counseling
The Counseling Center provides short-term psychotherapy to students of the University. The aim of individual counseling is to assist an individual to relieve distress or to improve their ability to function socially and academically. For students with issues that require longer-term treatment, a counselor may provide an initial assessment and then refer a client to an appropriate community provider. See our list of local community resources.
