Counseling Center


The Counseling Center provides students with an opportunity to explore, in a confidential setting, their problems and concerns with a professional psychotherapist. In addition, through the Counseling Center, students have access to psychiatric services. These services are free and available throughout the year.

The Counseling Center's goal is to provide counseling services to students so that they can develop their unique strengths and achieve their full potential in their academic, personal, and professional lives.

The Counseling Center is available to support students with a variety of issues, such as:

  • Adjustment to College
  • Depression
  • Anxiety and Stress
  • Loneliness
  • Lack of Self-confidence
  • Eating Problems
  • Anger Management
  • Abuse Issues
  • Concerns or Excessive Use of Alcohol or Drugs
  • Academic Problems
  • Future Decisions
  • Cultural/Ethnic Concerns
  • Family Problems
  • Grief and Loss Issues
  • Problems with Intimate Relationships
  • Sleep Problems
  • Questions Regarding Sexuality or Sexual Orientation
  • Interpersonal Problems

We all need support from time to time in our lives, so don't let these things get in the way of your academic career or personal life. Appointments may be made by visiting the Counseling Center in the Post University Leever Student Center if you live nearby, or by calling 203.596.4585 or e-mailing us at counseling@post.edu.
