At various times in a student’s life, situations may occur where it might be helpful to talk with someone trained and licensed as a professional counselor.

Her office is a comfortable setting to have a relaxed conversation, sort out confusing situations and find a solution that works best for you.

Topics that often concern college students are relationships with peers, family members, faculty and staff; self-confidence; adjustment problems; addictions; academic challenges; financial concerns; and a variety of mental health issues. Whatever concerns you or is a source of discomfort in your life is reasonable to consider talking over with a counselor.
