What is Counseling?

Welcome to our Wellness Center's counseling office. Our goal is to help you achieve balance in your approach to the world - to help you find meaning in your life. If you are in physical, emotional, or even spiritual pain, our center is a place where you can discuss the process of healing. If your journey is from health to greater well-being, our offices can support you in this quest.

Counseling is not easily described in general statements. It varies depending on the personalities of the counselor and the student, and the particular problems you bring to the session. There are many different approaches that counselors may use. 

The counseling process carries with it both risks and benefits. Since counseling may involve discussing unpleasant aspects of your life, you may experience uncomfortable feelings such as sadness, anger, frustration, anxiety, or doubt. And yet even though there are no "guarantees," by talking about issues that matter in your life, the process often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reductions in feelings of distress.
