College is stressful.  Counseling Services can help.

As a college counseling center, our services are focused on short-term counseling options in order to help students perform their best academically.   The current therapy techniques offered include:  solution-focused, biofeedback, cognitive behavioral therapy and interpersonal techniques.   If we determine that your treatment needs require resources or competencies beyond what we can provide, we will assist with a referral to an appropriate mental health provider or community agency.   (Please note: due to our scope of practice as a college counseling center, we are unable to accept any cases that are affiliated with an ongoing court case/order.)
