When to Schedule an Appointment

Often students feel that their problem is not important enough, they don't want to bother someone else or they feel they should be able to handle their problems on their own. The staff at the Counseling and Wellness Center feels differently, and we welcome any student — no matter how big or small the problem may be. We we encourage students to come and talk to us, and we really respect the courage it takes to reach out for support and call to make a first appointment. Counseling can be a useful and valuable resource and we encourage students to take advantage of this resource.

We provide counseling for a full range of problems. The Counseling and Wellness Center is a place where students can come and get help with personal, emotional, psychological and family problems. Some students come for help with self-esteem or relationship issues, or when they are feeling anxious or depressed, when they are overwhelmed by school pressures, or when they have experienced some type of trauma.

Common problems include:
  • Anxiety/stress

  • Depression/sadness

  • Your grades are slipping

  • You are sleeping too little or too much

  • Eating too much or too little

  • Worries about health

  • Relationship problems

  • Lack of motivation

  • Emotional, physical or sexual abuse

  • Loneliness

  • Alcohol or drug problems

  • Difficulty concentrating or studying

  • Sexuality or gender identity concerns

  • Overload with school/work/family

  • Feeling rejected

  • Shyness/social anxiety

  • Family problems

  • Adjustment to college

  • Suicidal thoughts

  • Death of a loved one or relationship loss

  • Self-harming or risky behavior

  • You have experienced a trauma


    No matter the problem, we are here to help in any way we possibly can — so make an appointment today. 

    “Nothing is worth more than this day.”
    -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
