counseling services

University students encounter a variety of challenges during their years of study. They face the tasks of separating from their families, establishing themselves as independent adults, developing new and closer relationships, and defining and committing themselves to a career. Older students may face some of the same challenges, while also managing the responsibilities of work and more permanent relationships.

Many students seek counseling as an aid to their personal development during their years of study. In counseling, they are able to discover more about themselves and to become more competent and confident, in both their work and their relationships with others.

"[Mental Health Problems] doesn’t have to take over your life, it doesn’t have to define you as a person, it’s just important that you ask for help. It’s not a sign of weakness." -Demi Lovato (singer, songwriter, and mental health advocate living with bipolar disorder)
