Intro to Individual Counseling
The university experience can be a time of substantial growth for students, filled with changes, challenges and new decisions. Few students move through this time without some personal turbulence, and many experience periods of trauma, crisis, stress, and confusion. The Student Counseling Center staff is available to help students with any problems they may be experiencing.

Individual Counseling Guidelines
Individual therapy services are typically brief in nature, and students will be evaluated to determine if their concerns can be addressed through brief therapy. Referrals to other agencies/practitioners may be made for concerns that require longer-term care. These referrals may be made following an intake session, upon completion of short-term services at the SCC, or anytime during the course of treatment.
