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.

College is a time of inner and interpersonal change, challenge, and growth. This is a wonderful, yet stressful time of life. The Counseling Center is available to support students with a variety of issues, such as:

  • Difficulties with Roommates
  • 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 Leever Student Center, or by calling 203.596.4585, or e-mailing us at
