Counseling Services

Solutions Through Insight

OUR MISSION

Counseling Services is dedicated to promoting the emotional well-being of students by recognizing individuality, diversity and the person's inherent ability to manage everyday challenges and achieve life goals.


Counselors are licensed professionals who provide personal counseling, career counseling, academic advising and high school completion.

Counselors have their own approach depending on the unique experiences of students.

Counselors provide consultation services to faculty and staff on matters concerning student success. You will find additional resources for faculty and staff.

Counselors offer workshops quarterly and visit classes to discuss a variety of topics including test anxiety, stress management, career exploration, etc. 

Counselors are members of the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) where faculty and staff are able to report their concerns for a student who is disruptive or acting in a potentiallly unsafe manner.  They are also key member of the Early Alert Program which is a designed to connect instructors with students and campus resources during the first three weeks of the quarter. Early Alert is critical for student persistence and success.

Student persistence and success is enhanced when students connect with professors and classmates, balance academics with other roles, create a clear path, learn how to learn and ask for help when needed.
