Individual Counseling

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.

  • Adjustment to college and/or other life transitions
  • Relationship difficulties

  • Anxiety
  • Interpersonal Issues
  • Grief and Loss
