Here to help
The Counseling Office is to provide professional counseling for students of the college in an attempt to help them develop to their full potential. The counselors strive to support the academic, career and personal development of all students. Services are provided by professionally trained counselors who believe that education is a developmental process integrating educational, personal and social development.
Counseling takes the form of individual personal counseling, group counseling, crisis intervention and/or referral.
The outcome of counseling is movement toward understanding thoughts and feelings, interests and aspirations, increased autonomy, relating meaningfully with others and integrating personal and social responsibilities.
For more information, contact 518.743.2278, or stop by our office in Warren Hall Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4 pm (some evening appointments are also available).
In a crisis, walk in and indicate the immediacy of an issue. If students are uncertain about counseling, introductory appointments may help them decide. The decision to seek counseling is always up to the individual.
