Frequently Asked Questions

What Kind of Student Seeks Counseling?

Students who seek counseling are individuals who are interested in growing and learning about themselves, their interpersonal relationships, and their relationship with God. Counseling often involves assisting students in overcoming current personal and educational concerns, and it also can serve a preventive function by helping anticipate situations that may hinder one’s growth and plan interventions that will be constructive.

How confidential is it?

Clients can expect that discussions will be kept confidential, except as otherwise required or permitted by law. Examples where confidentiality may be breached include child or adult abuse and behavior which poses a danger to the client or others.
