Personal Counseling

Our Licensed Professional Counselors help students cope with life issues.

While attending college students often encounter personal situations that impact with their ability to be a successful student. These situations can include depression, anxiety, financial stress, relationship issues, and the loss of a loved one. Similar to many physical illnesses, early recognition and treatment offers the best opportunity for recovery from mental health concerns. Our Licensed Professional Counselors are available to help students cope with these situations. Confidential short-term personal counseling is available and when appropriate a referral can be made to community resources for long-term personal counseling.

Make an Appointment with a Counselor

Personal counseling is a commitment and appointments are available for students. Personal counseling appointments are 45-50 minutes in length. The first session will explore your history and defining your goals for counseling. It is helpful to read our Informed Consent prior to your first appointment; however, we will also review Informed Consent during your first appointment. Call (810) 762-0111 to make an appointment.

Mental Health Screening
Take an anonymous and confidential mental health screening to examine any thoughts or behaviors that may be associated with depression, generalized anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, substance use, eating disorders, or post-traumatic stress disorder. The screening can help you find out whether or not professional consultation would be helpful to you.
