The counseling staff is available to help students with any issue or concern that they may encounter.

Individual short-term counseling may be especially helpful for you if you experience issues such as:

- Alcohol/Substance Abuse
- Low Self-Esteem
- Coping with HIV or other STD’s
- Self-defeating Behaviors

Group counseling is a valuable and effective service. Group participants often report having a rewarding and helpful experience. Our groups are a great way meet new people, discuss the challenges you have been experiencing, and get a fresh perspective. By joining one of our groups, you will build support, learn about yourself, but most importantly, you will be reminded that you are not alone.
Counselors look forward to assisting you to find the right group. They will help you find a group that will promote healthy sense of self, address your specific concerns, and provide supportive environment.
