Group Counseling


Group counseling is considered the “treatment of choice” when students are experiencing difficulty in relationships.  Typical group offerings include:

  • Relationships
  • Anger Management
  • Alcohol and Drug Abuse Recovery

Other groups such as eating disorder groups, sexual assault/abuse recovery groups, LGBT support, and grief groups are offered as needed.

Groups can be found on our live calendar of events. Search for "Counseling".

More info on groups can be found at bottom of the page


Support groups occur when students with common issues choose to get together and support one another in coping with those issues.  Usually, a counselor will meet with the support group once or twice to get them started and then the students continue to meet on their own as they choose.  Counseling Services staff will arrange space on campus for support groups to meet.  Students do not need to be clients of Counseling Services to participate.

If you are interested in a support group, please indicate your interest by completing the Support Group Interest Form.  When more than one student indicates interest in a particular support group, Counseling Services will contact those students to arrange a meeting.

 Abortion Support  Other
