From time to time, students are presented with concerns or problems that require challenging decisions and effective coping strategies. Talking with a professional counselor is an opportunity for a student to explore issues that may be interfering with their success and happiness in college. Counseling is a confidential process designed to help students learn more about themselves, address their concerns and problems, and to discover effective solutions. Some of the typical concerns students may have include adjustment difficulties, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, sexual assault, identity issues, and self esteem. Counseling is confidential and provided free for all Stevenson University students.
