The professional staff of Counseling and Career Services helps students, staff, and faculty resolve existing problems, prevent potential problems, and develop new skills that will enrich their lives. Moving from one stage of life to another can be stressful and though an exciting time these transitions present multiple challenges, new demands, as well as opportunities for growth.

We recognize that stress experienced during critical transitional periods sometimes creates difficulties that can interfer with academic performance, relationships and one’s overall quality of life. These difficulties can often be alleviated through professional counseling.The counseling services provided by the Office of Counseling and Career Services are designed to promote and enhance the quality of life for individuals by offering prevention and early treatment or referral for developmental, emotional or interpersonal difficulties that arise.

Counseling services are delivered in several formats including individual, couples and group counseling, classes, and workshops. Consultation and outreach services are also available to faculty and staff, University organizations and departments.
