Personal Counseling

The Counseling Center is here to help you succeed in fulfilling your educational goals. Sometimes personal, emotional or family problems may interfere with your learning. Personal counseling is available to help you learn how to more effectively manage life issues.

The mission of counseling is to provide you with a caring, supportive, and professional environment in which to explore personal challenges and facilitate change.


Counseling often deals with very personal and sensitive issues. Successful outcome depends on having a safe place to express your feelings, attitudes and thoughts with a counselor who respects you and your privacy. Counseling sessions are confidential, and any limits to confidentiality are carefully explained. Information may only be released with your written permission or as may be required by law.
