Counseling & Psychological Services

Mission Statement

The mission of Counseling and Psychological Services is to enhance the emotional growth and academic success of students by promoting balanced lifestyles, positive self-esteem, and essential life skills with an emphasis on the development of the whole person. Counseling and Psychological Services provides psychological counseling services and psychoeducational programs for students, as well as responsive consultation to the college community.

In counseling, students discuss issues such as anxiety, depression, stress management, academic concerns, family and relationship problems, grief, loneliness, eating disorders, substance abuse, dating violence and self-esteem difficulties. All sessions are confidential in keeping with professional ethics and state laws.
