Why see a counselor?
Some of the challenges that prompt college students to seek help from a counselor include but are not limited to:
- Trouble with school work for no easily identifiable reason
- Anxiety or anger interfering with daily life
- Feeling lonely or withdrawn from others
- Feeling out of control or desperate
- Depressed to the point of not getting things done
- Difficulties surrounding food or weight
- Present or past abuse or harassment
- Issues in personal relationships
Students are encouraged to set up an appointment even if they are not sure if counseling is what they need. Students who come for counseling come from all of the academic disciplines and face many of the same kinds of problems. Appointments are made with the student’s scheduling needs in mind, usually during the hours of 9:00am-5:00pm. Other appointment times are available upon request.
If students are looking for long term counseling or additional support, referrals can be made to counselors or therapists in the local community.
