To Request an Initial Appointment

The reasons people seek counseling are as varied as people themselves.  Seeking help through the University Counseling Center does not imply weakness.  Students coming into the Center are usually pursuing more effective and rewarding lives by confronting personal problems, relationship needs, career questions, or skill development issues.

Access to our full range of counseling services is available to currently enrolled University students and employees only.
