Many students, at times, experience uncertainty or confusion about themselves or their life situations. There is no problem too small or too big to bring to counseling. We have a diverse staff and trainees that work to create an atmosphere that is welcoming and multi-culturally sensitive for all students. 

It's super common to be nervous your first time to any Counseling Center and our staff aims to make this as comfortable as possible.
