The Counseling Services Office helps current students to develop coping strategies to improve their opportunity for success in college and life. Interventions build on strengths and encourage healthy lifestyle choices. Counseling services are provided at no additional cost and are offered in a confidential setting where students may freely discuss any concerns
Students may seek counseling for mental illness, depression, stress, anxiety, family and relationship difficulties, grief and loss, substance use, poor academic performance or a particular life situation. Students may be referred to the counselor by any individual on campus who has observed changes in the student’s personal appearance, mood, or behavior. In situations where the students safety or others safety is in question, counselors will share information with key campus personnel and make referrals as necessary. In situations where a student would benefit from more intensive services, the student will be referred to a community based provider.

All students utilizing Counseling Services have the right to confidentiality. This means that under most circumstances, others will not be provided with information without his or her written consent. There are exceptions, however. Counselors are required to release certain information:
- If, in the judgment of the counselor, there is imminent danger of serious harm to yourself and/or others, the counselor is required by law to reveal that information to the appropriate person in order to prevent harm.
- If the counselor has reasonable cause to suspect or believe that any child under the age of 18 years, an elder, or intellectually disabled person has been abused (physically, emotionally, mentally, or sexually) or neglected or is placed at imminent risk of serious harm, then the counselor must report this suspicion of belief to the appropriate authority.
- If the counselor is required to by process of law, such as a subpoena or a court order, or, in very limited circumstances, under applicable state law.
