Counseling and Wellness Services offers a variety of services to assist students in coping with personal or emotional concerns so as to enhance their academic performance and improve their general well-being. The Center offers a warm, relaxed, and confidential place to talk. Meeting with a therapist can be an important step in relieving stress as well as identifying strategies for addressing concerns. Therapy is offered in individual, couples, family and/or group modalities. In addition to therapy, we also provide psychological assessment, consultation, and psycho-educational seminars. Some examples of issues that may be addressed with our staff include: relationship problems, academic problems, family conflict, alcohol/drug use, sexual/physical abuse, panic/anxiety, depression, eating disorders, grief issues, and low self-esteem. All communications between a client and therapist are completely confidential and private. The Counseling and Wellness Services office does not release information to University administrators or faculty, parents, family members, or outside agencies without the client's written authorization. Exceptions to confidentiality include: when an individual is at risk for child or elder abuse/neglect, suicide, or homicide, or as otherwise required by Ohio Law. The Center is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is located at 053 Student Union.
