Individual counseling sessions

Individual sessions are held once per week for about 45-50 minutes each. The number of sessions a student attends varies depending on their presenting concerns. Students visit the center for many reasons that include a desire to:

  • Adjust to university life
  • Decrease feelings of sadness, depression, or loneliness
  • Lower anxiety and worry
  • Cope with stress or overwhelming emotions
  • Discuss relationship problems (significant other, friends, and/or family)
  • Manage thoughts of suicide or self-harm behavior
  • Reduce difficulties with procrastination, motivation, decision-making or test anxiety
  • Discuss eating, alcohol or substance use problems
  • Discuss feelings of low self-esteem
  • Heal from past experiences of assault, abuse, and/or trauma
  • Cope with death and illness

Group counseling sessions

The center will offer group counseling sessions/and or support groups on differing mental health topics. These groups are still in the planning stages and will be announced soon.
