Our Philosophy: 

Understanding our own personal stories is vital to living life well. Our stories are shaped by life events, as well as what is occurring inside of us. Sometimes, these experiences limit our healthy development. Overcoming these experiences through healing and growth cannot happen in isolation. Living in community provides opportunities to practice vulnerability and to create intimate, transformative connections

Our Mission:

The Center for Student Counseling and Wellness strives to equip students with the tools they need to learn and practice essential skills to experience cognitive, behavioral, social, and emotional well-being.

We do this by:

  • Guiding and supporting students in removing barriers to growth and wellness via community connections, self-help resources, psychoeducation modules and workshops, peer and group support, single-session counseling, and individual therapy.
  • Supporting our campus community by providing education and mental health resources that both promote and prioritize wellness.

Stepped Care Model

Stepped Care is a system of delivering and monitoring mental health treatment so the most effective, yet least resource-intensive treatment, is delivered first. Students seeking wellness services will move up and down the care model depending on their goals, presenting symptoms and the level of care needed. Step 1 is considered lower intensity, while Step 7 represents the most acute care. Intervention intensity may be stepped up or down according to their needs.

You can also utilize a new resource available to our students, T.A.O. (Therapy Assistance Online) TAO is a suite of online tools for client education, interaction, accountability, and progress assessment to facilitate effective behavioral health treatment and life-skills education.
