Learn About Our Services
Group therapy is a powerful treatment that allows people to connect deeply with themselves and with others. As one of the most effective treatments for a variety of concerns, we offer a diverse array of groups throughout the year that are focused on personal growth, skill development, and peer support.
If you're just looking for advice, aren't ready to invest in a full hour initial intake appointment, or you just aren't sure what you need, our Initial Consultations are right for you. In these 10-15 minute appointments, we can provide customized recommendations for on- and off-campus resources.
We are pleased to be able to offer individual therapy with our staff counselors. Availability of individual therapy varies by time of year, and we are happy to incorporate additional resources.
Peer Counselors are a group of students supported by the Counseling Center who are here to provide active listening and promote empathy and connection on campus.
We are proud to offer several options for wellness services, including Acupuncture, Sound Healing, a Wellness Room, an Art Therapy Space, and weighted blankets and Happy Lamps for you to try.
