Personal Counseling

What is Counseling?

Personal Counseling is a chance to confidentially talk with an objective person who can help you learn new skills and ways of looking at situations. This can help you become more capable of solving new problems on your own in the future. Some students benefit from one or two sessions of problem-solving, while others may require more. Although counselors may differ in their approach to counseling, all have one goal in common: to help you resolve your concerns.

  • Stress

  • Anxiety/Depression
