Counseling Services

A student’s life can be very stressful at times, especially when considering the multiple demands on your time and energy. We have licensed counselors available by appointment to help you identify and manage the sources and consequences of your stress.

Confidential services include individual/couple/family therapy, stress management and crisis intervention.

Our counselors can be your liaison to both university and community resources and can assist with a variety of needs including:

  • Time management and organizational skills
  • Worry and anxiety
  • Study skills
  • Interpersonal issues
  • Connecting to community resources
  • Academic problem solving

Please call to schedule an initial appointment at 706-737-1471. There is no charge for counseling services. A three-hour notification period is required if a student needs to cancel or reschedule a counseling session.
