The Counseling Center firmly believes in the importance of attention to the “whole person” in the educational process. The center aims to assist students in clarifying and accomplishing personal and academic goals, offering:
- Brief counseling and referral services for individuals who may be experiencing psychological or emotional difficulties
- Programming focused on the developmental needs of college students to help them maximize the benefits of their academic environment and experiences
- Consultation with faculty, staff, and parents regarding mental health concerns of students
Counseling services are available to currently registered students, and referral services are available to faculty and staff. There is no charge for individual or group counseling.
The Counseling Center is located on the lower level of the Shaw Student Center. Contact 801.832.2465 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
Individual and group counseling is available to registered students. Depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, and academic concerns are some of the common reasons for seeking counseling services. Referrals to off-campus clinicians/agencies will be provided when appropriate.
The Counseling Center staff utilizes a brief, client-centered, solution-focused approach to counseling. This approach emphasizes a focus on strengths and the establishment of specific treatment goals. Counselors work with students to develop effective problem-solving and healthy coping skills.
Counseling services are confidential.
Therapy and Support Groups
Therapy and support groups are available to students who may benefit from sharing experiences, giving and receiving feedback, and experimenting with new interpersonal behaviors in a safe, confidential environment. We offer group counseling depending on student interest—we’ve offered mindfulness and wellness groups in the past. Please contact us for more information on current groups.
