Counseling Services Offered

The School of Professional Counseling facilities are established as training and research facilities.  The individuals providing counseling services to clients at any of the Counseling Services facilities are typically graduate students in the School of Professional Counseling (working under the licensed supervision of full-time doctoral faculty) and others approved by the Director of Clinical Services & Training.

The School of Professional Counseling facilities offer confidential services for a variety of concerns, including:

  • stress management
  • career counseling
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • relationships
  • life problems
  • adjusting to college life
  • grief & loss

Types of Services:

  • First Intake Interview
    The first intake interview session will last approximately 90 minutes to gather a variety of information about the client's needs and interests

    Family sessions involve all, or as many as possible/necessary, members of the family.  The counselors will help the family members work through any problems that are related to family functioning and communication.  Sessions may last from 50 to 90 minutes depending on the number of clients involved.
