Student Counseling Service

Students often juggle multiple roles and demands, which for some students can be too much to manage. Student Counseling Service is committed to helping you get the most from your educational experience by supporting optimum well-being and psychological wellness.

During your visit with Student Counseling Service, we'll assess the nature of your concerns and recommend specific ways to meet your goals. We aim to help you live a happier, healthier and more productive life by bringing awareness and intentionality to your choices. Our process is collaborative, focused on solutions to meet your needs.
