Free Confidential, Short-Term Individual Counseling

Provided by licensed psychologists and advanced trainees under close supervision by the licensed staff.

Referral Services

Because our center provides short-term counseling, community referrals to appropriate agencies are offered for students in need of longer-term or more specialized services.

Crisis Intervention

Walk-in/crisis hours are set aside each day for students who are experiencing a crisis or feel they cannot wait for a regularly scheduled appointment. Walk-in hours tend to fill quickly and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.


Our center offers faculty, staff, and administrators the opportunity to get assistance dealing with challenging students, difficult circumstances and disruptive situations involving students.

Workshops and Training

We offer a wide variety of workshops and training on topics such as stress management, test anxiety, mindfulness, healthy relationships, mental illness, suicide prevention, and substance use.
