Group Counseling

The Student Counseling Center offers group counseling. Group counseling provides a safe environment for self-exploration and collaborative problem-solving, combining professional guidance and the support of your peers. Group counseling is an effective approach to many common concerns for college students, including: navigating difficult relationships, coping with anxiety, and feelings of isolation. Please contact the Student Counseling Center by phone or email to register for a group.
