Counseling Services can help students gain an understanding that leads to a resolution of problems.
Individual and group counseling focuses on helping develop a sense of competence, learning to meet increased or different academic and social demands, resolving interpersonal conflict, managing drug/alcohol related problems, depression or anxiety, resolving losses and other areas. If a student requires long-term counseling, referral to a local professional is usually made following an assessment by the counselor and student.
