During your first appointment, you will be encouraged to discuss your concerns and goals with a counselor. Together, you and your therapist will determine what services will be most effective for you. If Counseling Services is unable to provide the type of service you need, you will be given the option of selecting an appropriate agency or specialist in the community.
Counseling is most effective when clients are ready to actively participate in establishing and working on treatment goals, completing assignments, and discussing difficult issues.
The Counseling Services staff provides short-term individual counseling on multiple issues and concerns, including:
|Anxiety||Grief and loss|
|Stress management||Family & relationship problems|
|Substance abuse/dependence||Eating disorders|
|Sexuality||Dealing with divorce|
|Lifestyle concerns||Academic pressures|
From time to time, the staff provides opportunities for Group Counseling focused on a particular issue or concern. The focus in groups is to learn how to change thinking, feelings and behavior in order to feel better. Learning how to use your own strengths in daily situations in a supportive environment will help you to resolve problems.
