When should you see a counselor?

Students can meet and speak with a counselor about any problem that is or could become an obstacle to their academic success. Common problems faced by students include the following:

  • high-levels of anxiety or stress
  • feelings of low self-worth or depression
  • difficulties in relationships with family members, spouses, or friends
  • feelings of grief or loss due to the loss of a family member or close friend
  • balancing school, work, and family responsibilities
  • managing anger or other strong emotions
  • stress or trauma associated with prolonged military service or other intense experiences or activities
  • poor time management and/or study skills
  • uncertainty about academic goals or choice of degree program or major

In short, no problem is too big or too small to our counselors. They will provide you with whatever help they can or, if necessary, refer you to others who can assist you.
