The staff of the Counseling Center views counseling as another form of learning where students are able to learn more effective means of resolving concerns and developing strategies for achieving personal and professional goals. Counseling can assist those who are experiencing various personal problems and difficulties. Some of the concerns commonly addressed include adjustment to college, relationships, stress, depression, loneliness, anxiety, and self-esteem. If student needs are better served by other resources, referrals will be made to an appropriate community resource.
The best way to schedule an appointment is to contact the Director of Counseling Services or by calling (615) 547-1397. The office can be found in Labry Hall 225.
