Counseling Services

Our Mission

Counseling Services advances the educational mission of Elon University by providing quality psychological interventions, outreach, and consultation services to address the emotional, social, and academic needs of Elon University students.

Our Commitment to Diversity

We are committed to embracing diversity in all its forms as a core value of our agency.  We are a multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary, and multi-theoretical staff striving to provide culturally competent clinical services and community interventions.  We are dedicated to promoting an environment of respect and appreciation for the race, ethnicity, national origin, gender identity, age, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, physical/mental ability, and socioeconomic status of all students.  We aim to provide a safe, welcoming, and affirming environment for all persons who utilize our services.
