The college years are an exciting, but sometimes stressful time. Many students encounter problems that are not easily resolved or their usual ways of handling problems aren't working well for some reason. They may have found, for example, that talking to friends or relatives about their concerns is impossible or unsatisfying. Counseling is a chance to talk over what is on your mind with an objective person in a safe space that allows you to put into words the thoughts and feelings that are inside you. By participating in counseling you can learn new skills and ways of looking at situations so that you will be more capable of solving problems on your own.
Some common concerns confronting students include anxiety, stress, low self-confidence, relationship difficulties, depression, self-defeating behaviors, academic problems, sexual identity concerns and decision-making dilemmas.
