Are you experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family of origin concerns? Is your adjustment to college life not going as smoothly as you would like? Are you concerned about self-esteem or self-image issues, difficulties forming friendships, sexuality matters? Drug and alcohol abuse, past or recent trauma, self-harm issues?
Take heart—you are not mentally ill! You are normal! We all experience some of these concerns, and many others, during the course of life, particularly at times of significant change like the period of late adolescence and early adulthood.
And that’s where we come in. We’re the UD counseling team, and our job is to work with you in responding effectively to whatever difficulties you might be facing. We are licensed therapists with wide and varying backgrounds in the mental health and wellness fields, as well as supporting fields such as education, chemical dependency, and ministry.
Counseling is available to all undergraduate students, as well as to those graduate students who are enrolled fulltime and completing coursework. Counseling is not available to students who are employed fulltime and taking occasional classes in the graduate programs. There is no cost for counseling services.
We are located in Haggar, upstairs next to the medical clinic.
We provide counseling related to all late adolescent and early adulthood issues (for example, personal identity and social and relationship concerns), college life issues (coping with the various challenges of university life such as managing time and interacting with new social groups), and psychological issues such as stress, depression, anxiety, self-esteem and self-image, and family of origin issues.
The most frequently noted concerns brought to counseling at UD are depression, relationship issues, family issues, anxiety, stress and coping, social skills, and sexuality issues. No problem is too big or too small for counseling.
Because of the nature of the counseling relationship, counselors are both ethically and legally bound to honor the confidentiality of their adult (18 and over) clients.
