Center for Clinical Services building

Services Offered

We serve adults, adolescents, children, couples and families. Counseling can help most individuals to identify and build on their strengths and resources they have (within themselves and their communities) as well as to learn skills that can help them face life’s problems. People come to counseling for all sorts of reasons.

Our caring counselors offer help to those dealing with:

Individual and group adult counseling. We are here to help you to grow personally and to deal with personal or social concerns such as relationships, depression, anxiety, grief, stress management, career concerns, life transitions, decision-making and stress.

Individual and group adolescent counseling. We provide activity and talk-based counseling for preteens and teenagers (ages 8-17). Just a few examples of reasons for counseling include personal, social, career, identity, school concerns, sadness, anxiety, academic stress and family conflicts, and learning to understand and express emotions appropriately.  Children seven and under may be seen through the Center for Autism and Early Childhood Mental Health.

Career counseling. Services are available for people who are undecided about what they want to do, for those wanting to change careers, and for those happy in their career choice but are dealing with workplace issues (e.g., stress, issues with co-workers). Career counseling includes exploring personal values, interests, and cultural factors affecting one’s career decisions; identifying strengths and career goals; participating in career searches; and maneuvering through career transition.

Couples counseling. Couples counseling helps couples to develop communication and relationship skills for managing concerns and adjustments common in committed relationships.

Family counseling. Family counseling is focused on developing communication and relationship skills for managing concerns and adjustments common in committed relationships. ‌
