What is counseling?

Counseling is a process in which you work with a professionally trained counselor in becoming a healthier human being in all aspects of life: Emotional, Intellectual, Physical, and Spiritual.
Counseling is:

  • A voluntary activity. Whether you decide to return for more sessions is up to you.
  • A confidential discussion about a situation, problem, relationship, family issue, or habit that you want to change.
  • A positive step you can take when you get stuck in life.
  • An educational and growth oriented experience.
  • An active collaboration with your counselor to find workable solutions to life barriers, not one in which a counselor "fixes" you.

If you are experiencing an Urgent Mental Health Situation during business hours, call the Counseling and Wellness Office, even if you do not have an appointment. Let us know that it is an urgent matter and we will speak with you as soon as possible. If you are experiencing a mental health crisis or emergency situation after hours, please call 911 or utilize the following 24 hour resources:
