Counseling Services

We provide services in consideration of the individual as a whole and emphasize emotional and physical well- being, as well as academic concerns. A Wellness philosophy is the foundation for all services and programs. Our belief is that Wellness helps students be more responsible for their lives and to understand the factors that affect their well-being. Students are more resilient to meeting demands and challenges when they make informed and reflective decisions.
