Counseling and Psychological Services



Group counseling can be a great choice for individuals who want to improve themselves with respect to interpersonal relationships, assertiveness, mood or emotions, and many other areas. Groups are facilitated by one or two counselors and usually consist of about 5-8 students with similar concerns who meet regularly during a semester and use the time to learn from one another’s experiences, receive and provide feedback and support, practice skills, and gain confidence in themselves.

Group Descriptions

Drop-In Group

The Drop-In Group is a relaxed space that provides support and connection for students that are struggling to adjust to life on campus. Whether it is anxiety, loneliness, homesickness and/or you're wondering, "What was I thinking? How did I end up here?" The Drop-In Group is a place to find support and build on personal strengths to navigate the transition to college successfully. No appointment is necessary, so you can drop in during the scheduled group times – students are welcome at one or both groups each week!

Understanding Self & Others Group

This in-person group offers members the opportunity to increase self-awareness, gain confidence, and improve how they relate to others. It is intended to be a safe and supportive place to hear from others and try out new ideas and ways of being. Building and maintaining healthy identity and relationships can also be helpful in improving mood, managing anxiety, and dealing with long held struggles as well as day-to-day stress.

Fall Husky Reconnect Seminar

This 4 part series focuses on accessing support strategies as students move back into the full Husky experience. Session one explores individual and collective experiences reflecting on time apart during the pandemic. Session two assists with strategies to manage anxiety as we re-enter social and academic spaces. Session three identifies areas of personal resilience discovered during the pandemic. Session four focuses on developing specific strategies to support academic and personal success.
