Counseling Center

 

Holloway Hall

Consultation for faculty, staff, parents and students

Consultation regarding the behavioral and emotional problems of others is available for parents, students, faculty, or staff.  While information about current clients is confidential, staff at the Counseling Center can offer recommendations after a discussion about the behavior and emotional state of the individual in question.  Recommendations might include strategies for approaching the troubled individual and making a referral.  Relevant resources on or off campus could also be discussed.  Please see Referring Others for more information on recognizing problems and making an effective referral.
