We're Here When You Need Us

We understand that sometimes problems can't wait. If you need help NOW, call or stop by during our open hours and we will meet with you as soon as possible. For emergencies, contact security (see contact information at the bottom of this page). Security officers will reach a member of the counseling center.

Confidentiality

Many students are concerned about the privacy of their visits to the counseling center. Visits to the counseling center are confidential. The content of sessions is not discussed with anyone and Counseling Center records do not become part of a student’s university record. With rare exception, which your counselor will discuss with you, records can be released with your written permission.

How Do I Know It's Time To Call?

Everyone experiences ups and downs, but there are times when it can become difficult to resolve problems independently. Counseling can be very helpful when these moments arise. Some cues that it may be time to contact the counseling center are:

• Feelings that are becoming overwhelming or unmanageable
• Intrusive thoughts that you cannot shake
• Difficulty sleeping and/or eating
• Feeling that relationships are troubled
• Just not feeling like yourself and worried that things may not resolve on their own
• Feeling the need to disclose upsetting or confusing events
• Feeling the need to voice pent-up thoughts and emotions
• Difficulty focusing on schoolwork
 

Can I Have Counseling Even If I Am Not In A Crisis Right Now?

Absolutely! Counseling can be beneficial even if you do not have anything out of the ordinary going on. It can help you gain insight into yourself and your life, and help you function better overall.
