SUNY Oneonta

Counseling Center

The Counseling Center, located in the Counseling, Health and Wellness Building, provides supportive, collaborative, professional counseling for students. When young adults leave home for college, they face many challenges. They may find themselves coping with feelings of stress, anxiety, sadness, or loneliness. There are developmental challenges such as missing home, making new friends, having romances, going through breakups, experiencing loss, worrying about friends and family at home, making career decisions and life style choices. Students face difficult decisions about serious issues such substance use, sexuality, and coping with prejudice. These feelings, challenges, and stresses can interfere with the academic and social goals of students. Talking with a counselor can help students to cope while they learn new strategies and techniques for problem solving. Counseling can help students frame problems in ways that lead to solutions, and help to minimize the negative academic consequences of poor choices and help to clarify values related to career and lifestyle choices.

  • Students are seen by appointment on a voluntary basis.
  • Counseling is confidential.
  • There is no charge.

In addition to providing counseling services, counselors also offer consultation to friends, roommates and family members who may be concerned about a student. Confidential information cannot be discussed, but counselors can help to evaluate concerns, discuss options, and assist in problem solving. Reach the Center by calling 436-3368 or by visiting the Counseling Center's website.
