Vision

By implementing the Four Pillars of Health and Healing in an integrative way, we aim to create a healthier, more productive academic community.

Our four pillars of health and healing are:

  1. Counseling Services
  2. Wellness Services
  3. Alternative and Complimentary Services
  4. Health Services

It is recommended that students seek help and support when problems arise. We encourage all students experiencing difficulties that could compromise their ability to remain enrolled at St. Joseph’s College to contact us immediately to set up an appointment with a counselor. 

The Center for Counseling and Wellness is committed to affirming and respecting people of all backgrounds. We aim to respond respectfully and empathetically to each person’s unique struggle, personal history and cultural background. 

All services are free and confidential. No information is recorded on your school record.
