Couples/Family Counseling

The Counseling Center provides Couple and Family Counseling services for students.

Problems that are centered around an ongoing relationship may need to be addressed in couples or family counseling. Services are offered to couples regardless of marital status and/or sexual orientation, as long as at least one of the partners is a current student.

To have a better idea of the couple's or family's issues and to make appropriate recommendations for treatment, it is necessary to have all members come together during the Initial Consultation hours. If all members are not available during the Initial Consultation hours, please call the front office and ask for alternative times for an initial interview.

Emergency Services

The Counseling Center offers after-hours emergency coverage for urgent mental health concerns such as suicidal thoughts, sexual assault, and other trauma.  Call the Counseling Center at 828-262-3180 and select the option to speak with the counselor on-call.

During operating hours, students in crisis can walk in any time.
