Scope of Service

Every client will receive an initial evaluation by interns resulting in recommendations for best treatment which are then reviewed by licensed staff.

Vision Statement

We provide exceptional counseling services that are rooted in mindfulness. With compassionate presence and wisdom, we support the diversity, health and well-being of students and the local community.

Our counselors are well trained in the integration of innovative, contemplative, creative and traditional methods of counseling.
