Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, you work one-on-one with a counselor to address your concerns. Our counselors are trained to provide the support and space to be a source of support and understanding, and they will help you explore your options and develop effective strategies to cope with your concerns. 

Common concerns addressed in individual counseling include: 

  • Depression 
  • Anxiety/stress 
  • Low self-confidence 
  • Relationship difficulties (i.e., romantic, family, peer) 
  • Academic problems (i.e., motivation, confidence, concentration) 
  • Concerns related to sexual orientation and identity 
  • Decision-making dilemma 
  • Eating too much or too little 
  • Difficulty balancing the demands of college student life 
  • Grieving the death of someone close to you 
  • Recovering from unwanted sexual contact or violence 
  • Hopelessness or suicidal thinking 

Many students consider individual counseling to be the most effective form of  counseling. However, if your concerns are related to interpersonal dynamics  (relationship problems, communication concerns, social anxiety, etc.), you may also be  referred to one of our therapy groups. Group therapy is the most effective treatment for such concerns and offers students a place to examine and improve their relationship dynamics in a safe, confidential group environment.
