Counseling is a process that can help people identify more effective strategies both to cope with difficult situations and to achieve their goals. While some people who seek counseling have chronic emotional difficulties, most are dealing with normal life events and are simply in need of a supportive listener- someone who doesn't judge and who can help them see new alternatives.
For college students, help may come from friends, family members, significant others, etc., but in some cases, help is needed from a trained professional. Counseling can provide students with support and help in finding ways to cope with the emotions that go along with a difficult period. The goal of the Counseling Center is to provide students with an opportunity to explore their concerns and problems with professional mental health providers in a confidential setting.
