Life is Different Right Now

There have been many significant changes to our lives in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the majority of which can be challenging. It is normal to feel worried and scared. It is normal to feel overwhelmed by the effects of social-distancing or quarantining, remote courses and learning, changes to lifestyle, living arrangements, financial status, etc. Please know that the Counseling Center is here for you. Reach out to us if you are struggling.
