Life can be challenging! Donnelly’s Counseling Center offers services to our students, staff, and faculty free of charge.
We all look at the world through a filter of our own emotions. This is why we are sometimes unable to see solutions for ourselves when we are dealing with subjects which are emotionally charged. A counselor is able to help us sort through the emotional storm by reflecting back the content of what we are experiencing while still respecting the depth of the emotions involved. Counseling is not just for mental health ‘problems.’ It’s for all of us when we experience a lack of clarity or stress relating to how we are feeling.
The idea of counseling can be similar to seeing a physician for a yearly physical or a preventative exam to see if there are any opportunities to guide us towards a more healthy and fulfilling life. Our mental and physical health can influence every part of our life. If you are interested in optimizing any aspect of it, contact the Counseling Center for an appointment.
