Counseling Services seeks to assist all students in personal and professional development both within their college experience and beyond. Counseling Services works to help students of all intersecting identities successfully transition through various academic and interpersonal challenges to attain their individual goals and optimize their learning experiences.

We recognize the inherent racism in the differential response of law enforcement and government officials to those inciting and perpetrating violence in recent months and the Black Lives Matter protests calling for a just and equal society. We recognize the emotional and psychological impact of witnessing violence, terrorism, and racist acts even if they take place at a physical distance, for all students and particularly for our BIPOC students.   


If you need support or would like a space to process and explore how current events are affecting you, please contact Counseling Services upon your return for classes this spring semester. And if you need support earlier, please consider calling 1-866-564-1636 where you can speak to a counselor for free any time, day or night.


Due to COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently offering telehealth appointments to students who are able to be seen every two weeks or longer. For more information visit our COVID-19 Resource Page.

If you are requesting or needing weekly therapy please visit our Community Provider Database for clinicians offering telehealth.
