The years at college can be amongst the most gratifying and challenging of a person’s life. For traditional age students, transitioning into adulthood propels choices about ways of life and learning while encountering a broader world of relation- ships and ideas. These choices and changes can create or intensify problems in living. For non-traditional students, too, there are new choices and pursuing academic goals may add to the difficulty of ongoing personal and work responsibilities. The Counseling Center is prepared to respond to the mental health needs of the College community in a compassionate, competent, and confidential manner. The professionally licensed counseling staff provides psychological counseling, psycho- educational programming, and consultative services which are free of charge. Appointments can be made in person or by telephone at 540-375-2302.
