Our Services

Counseling and Testing Center

Individual Counseling
Individuals may work with a clinician in order to identify, understand, and resolve personal and relationship difficulties.

Group Counseling
At times issues are most effectively dealt with in a supportive environment where interaction occurs with others.  Groups are structured to promote personal growth and skill development by focusing on particular concerns such as self esteem, eating disorders, sexual abuse and college adjustment.

Consultation/Referrals
The Center's staff is available to share its expertise with University administration, faculty, staff and students.  If assistance from other departments, professionals or agencies is indicated, the staff will facilitate such contacts.

Educational Programs
The Counseling and Testing Center offers special programs and workshops designed to define and/or prevent problems and improve the quality of university life.  These Outreach programs are presented for students on a regular basis, as well as by request.  These offerings provide cognitive, behavioral and affective information that addresses a broad range of concerns.

Topics such as stress management, relationships, test-taking, effective communication, time management, anger management and co-dependency  are typically scheduled.  Contact the Counseling and Testing Center (836-5116) for more information on our Outreach programs.  Requests should be received two weeks prior to the Outreach date. 

In order to optimize the learning experience, we ask that the person requesting the program or a representative be present during the presentation. For more information about our current workshops click here.
