spacer spacer About Counseling

Counseling is a collaborative process that involves the development of a unique, confidential, helping relationship. In this relationship, the counselor acts as a facilitator in helping the client to understand him/herself and the world around him/her more accurately. Individuals are helped to understand their feelings and behaviors, their relationships with others, their particular situation, choices, and decisions. Discussion of whatever is important and relevant enables individuals to grow towards greater freedom in making mature choices and taking responsible action with themselves, relationships, family, and studies.

The Counseling Center is a place to benefit from caring, experienced professionals. Counselors are nonjudgmental and objective. Counselors help you feel comfortable in talking - they understand and help you with your initial anxiety. Counseling in the Counseling Center involves the concerns and problems of all students. Many students, male and female, use the Counseling Center's services. Initiating counseling and remaining in counseling is voluntary. All counseling is confidential. No information is released to anyone without written consent except under very specific legal requirements. Unless you tell them, your professors will not know whether you are in counseling or not, and there will be no indication on your educational records that you sought counseling. Your counselor will explain the limits of confidentiality before counseling begins.

Common concerns that students bring to the Counseling Center are:

Low self-confidence
Finding, helping, or losing a relationship
Getting along with others
Confusing or distressing emotional states
Self-defeating behaviors
Controlling use of alcohol and drugs
Studying more effectively
Clarifying life purpose and direction
Making better decisions
Personal growth/wellness
Family issues, such as alcoholism or divorce
Anger Management
Transitions and adjustment to college
Trauma such as sexual abuse and rape
GLBTQ concerns
Eating disorders
