Counseling Center

The Gordon College Counseling Center provides mental health services at no cost to students to facilitate their adjustment to college, academic success and ability to be contributing members of the residential community. We provide the following services:

Mental health assessments

  • Short-term counseling
  • Referrals to on-campus resources and off-campus professionals
  • Consultation to administrators, faculty and staff
