    Here When You Need Us
    We understand that sometimes problems just can’t wait. If you need help NOW, just call or stop by during our open hours and we’ll meet with you as soon as possible. For emergencies, contact security (see number at the bottom of this page). Security officers will reach a member of the counseling center.

    Confidentiality
    Many students are concerned about the privacy of their visits to the counseling center. Visits to the counseling center are confidential. The content of sessions is discussed with no one. Counseling center records do not become part of a student’s university record. With rare exceptions, which your counselor will discuss with you, records can only be released with your written permission.

    How Do I Know It’s Time To Call?
    Everyone experiences ups and downs, but there are times that it is difficult to resolve problems independently. Counseling can be very helpful when these moments arise. Some cues that it may be time to contact the counseling center are:

    • Feelings that are becoming overwhelming or unmanageable
    • Intrusive thoughts that you can’t shake
    • Difficulty sleeping and/or eating
    • Feeling that relationships are troubled
    • Just not feeling like yourself and worried that things may not resolve on their own
    • Feeling the need to disclose upsetting or confusing events
    • Feeling the need to voice pent-up thoughts and emotions
    • Difficulty focusing on schoolwork

    Can I Have Counseling Even If I’m Not In A Crisis Right Now?
    Absolutely! Counseling can be beneficial even if you don’t have anything out of the ordinary going on. It can help you gain insight into yourself and your life and help you function better across the board.
