INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING provides an opportunity to talk about yourself, your feelings, the way you relate to other people, your values, and any other topics that concern you.  You’ll find answers to frequently asked questions in FAQS.

GROUP COUNSELING can provide helpful information and connections to others. Support groups are offered at times for various populations such as first-year students, law students and international students.

CONSULTATION is for times when you are concerned about someone else.  We are happy to talk with you in person or on the telephone to help develop ideas for dealing effectively with the situation.

EMERGENCY SERVICES are described on their own page.
