Attending college can be stressful. We can help!
We provide comprehensive counseling services to students that are in some form of transition in their lives. Our training and background allows us to effectively navigate their complex personal, academic and career barriers to positively affect their classroom and future workplace success. We provide a full spectrum of services including crisis intervention, consultation with administration, faculty, staff, and parents (within confidentiality guidelines), support of mental health issues, developing healthy choices, course instruction, coordination grant activities as well as general support of the college on all levels. For career counseling, we understand the holistic nature of career decision making in that it affects all aspects of our lives. As trained professionals, we feel comfortable with this holistic approach to personal/professional growth from interpreting assessments to decision making to creating a career/life plan. However, at its core, the true value of counseling is difficult to quantify. It may not be until someone themselves (or someone they care about) needs counseling help before the value of counseling is truly understood.
If you'd like to arrange a visit with a counselor, simply call our Welcome Center at 1.800.322.9982 and request a counseling appointment.
