Counseling Services

Counseling services are available for all students who want to talk with a professional about a variety of topics. You may have concerns about relationships with your peers, family members, faculty and staff; you might be dealing with self-confidence issues or adjusting to college life; addictions; academic challenges; financial concerns; or a variety of mental health issues. 

Whatever your stressors are, consider making an appointment with campus counselor Linda Cimpl. All sessions are free of charge and completely confidential.
