Center for Counseling & Consultation

There may be times when you might need extra support to cope more effectively with a personal or emotional issue. The staff at the Center for Counseling & Consultation (CCC) is dedicated to helping students with a whole range of challenges that may interfere with the ability to live well, relate to others, and succeed academically.

These challenges may include: stress, anxiety, family or social concerns, relationship difficulties, grief, trauma, alcohol or substance abuse, food relationship issues, homesickness and loneliness.

Our services include assessment, individual and group counseling, crisis intervention, consultation and referral and outreach programming. Psychiatric consultation is also available when appropriate.  

All CCC services are free and confidential within the limits of legal and ethical restrictions. Information about students will not be shared with anyone without their written consent except in emergency situations if harm is imminent.

The Center uses a short-term counseling model but should you need more longstanding or specialized support referrals can be made to resources within the community that best suit your needs.
