With respect to academics, the Personal Counseling Center assists students in exploring problematic concerns such as memory, concentration, perfectionism, procrastination, and conflict resolution. Counseling can help to provide students with the skills to become more successful and competent in dealing with test anxiety, stress management, and communication with faculty.

Everything you say during an appointment at the counseling center is confidential, we won’t share information with anyone without your permission. No one can access your information except the counseling center staff. The only exceptions are situations where we are required by law or a life threatening situation exists.
