Talking to a counselor is a common experience for college students.  Counselors can offer assistance for issues ranging from dealing with parents or fitting in socially as well as other issues like depression or anxiety.  Seeking help with a counselor is a sign of strength and maturity rather than weakness or illness.  The experience can free your energies for school and for having fun.  If you have a persistent worry or concern, seeing a counselor is a good first step to getting through the issue.

Edgewood College's Personal Counseling Services is a place on campus where you can talk with someone confidentially about a concern.  You can talk to one of our experienced personal counselors about a range of issues to get perspective, to experience relief and healing, and to help in decision-making. We strive to offer a safe environment for people of all abilities, races, sexuality and gender identity, religious affiliation or economic status.
Short-term counseling is available for help with issues such as:
              • Relationship Difficulties
              • Family Concerns
              • Adapting to College Life
              • Self-esteem Issues
              • Decision-making
              • Depression
              • Stress Reduction
              • Anxiety
              • Panic
              • Body image, disordered eating patterns
              • Sexual Assault
              • Grief and Loss
              • Sexuality Identity
              • Alcohol & Drug Abuse
