Group Counseling

Dedicated to Promoting Your Mental Health

Counseling and Psychological Services strives to be warm and welcoming. We provide a range of programs to promote mental health, emotional resilience and wellness throughout the campus community. Our clinical services include individual counseling, couples counseling, and group therapy, as well as referrals for  psychiatric services and close collaboration with the Psychiatry team. All of our services are free, confidential and provided by a diverse and multiculturally competent professional staff.


Our stress management programs include meditation and relaxation groups at request, educational and experiential presentations on stress management and relaxation, and a library of meditation and relaxation exercises for streaming and downloading. Programs are aimed at assisting students in managing various stressors associated with university life, relationship struggles, reducing anxiety and time management.


Our professional clinicians offer outreach and consultation to faculty, staff and students across campus. We provide training and education on a variety of mental health and wellness topics, specifically focusing our efforts on working with distressed, suicidal, and disruptive students on campus.

Our clinicians work with students, parents, staff and faculty during orientation programs, in classes, at health and wellness fairs, in residence halls, at fraternities and sororities, in crisis situations, and, of course, as a collaborative member of the Student Wellness Partners.
