Our goal is to create a safe environment where students are free to explore their concerns as they adjust to the challenges of college life.
Common concerns may include, but are not limited to:
Anxiety, depression and grief
Relationships and sexuality
Homesickness and family problems
Any current source of distress that may negatively influence the student experience
Short-term individual counseling
Brief psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families
Psycho-educational support groups
Consultation to concerned faculty, staff and parents
The center is staffed by professionally qualified master's level and licensed clinicians. In addition, we offer internship training for graduate level students.
If you have a preference regarding choice of a counselor, we will make every effort to accommodate your request.
We do not provide long-term care or court-ordered treatment or counseling that is involved in litigation. Counseling cannot be mandated or required for students. For counseling to be effective, it must be voluntary. In life-threatening situations, authorities at JWU may require a safety assessment for a student.
