Going to college can be a time of growth and stress. Many students experience personal turmoil during this process and some come face to face with crisis and confusion. The Counseling Services’ staff is available to help students with any issue or concern that they may encounter. In a comfortable and confidential setting, students can examine issues such as gaining independence, managing new relationships, balancing academic stresses, or about making meaningful career decisions.
Individual counseling may be especially helpful for you if you experience issues such as:
- Relationship Distress
- Eating Disorders
- Anger Management Issues
- Alcohol/Substance Abuse
- Low Self-Esteem
- Coping with HIV or other STD’s
- Self-defeating Behaviors
- Sexual Problems
- Thoughts of Harming Self or Others
To get started, call Counseling Services at 210-458-4140, or review our Getting Started page. Tell the receptionist you are interested in talking to someone about individual counseling. You will be connected to Counselor on Duty (COD) if one is available at the time you call. When you call, you will be asked a series of questions to help determine the best form of treatment. This process is called phone triage and will take about 15 minutes. Depending on your concern, it is possible that the counselor may suggest a form of treatment other than individual counseling. Many issues can be addressed with other types of interventions such as group therapy, one-time consultation or through use of web-based learning. To find out what the best form of treatment for you is, call Counseling Services today.
