Personal Counseling

Sometimes we all need a little help along the way. If you are a current member of the BSC community and are experiencing stress or personal problems—our personal counselors are available to offer support. The primary purpose of the counseling center is to provide individual and group counseling in an atmosphere of confidentiality and acceptance. We also work with students needing academic accommodations due to learning, emotional, or physical disabilities.

You may want to seek counseling if you are experiencing:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Problems with friends and intimate relationships
  • Homesickness
  • Eating issues
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Academic problems—missing classes, avoiding people
  • Feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or loneliness
  • Self-defeating or destructive patterns of behavior
  • Confusion about your life
  • Decision-making issues

Our available services include:

  • Individual counseling
  • Group counseling
  • Assessment
  • Referral and assistance in finding off-campus resources
  • Educational programs

BSC Counseling & Health Services holds to the highest professional, ethical, and legal standards of confidentiality as set forth by the American Counseling Association. Maintaining client confidentiality and privacy is of the utmost importance in order to facilitate effective therapeutic relationships. Interested individuals can learn more regarding our policy and procedures for protecting client's confidentiality and records in our Client Confidentiality, Privacy & Records Policy.
