Counseling Services

Counseling Services provides brief solution-based mental health services to individual students experiencing emotional or situational difficulties and can help a student adjust to college life in a supportive and understanding environment. The office is in Health Services on the first floor of Riesenberg Gym.

One-on-one and group counseling is available to help with depression, anxiety, academic issues, interpersonal relationships, sexuality, stress, grief/loss, anger control and roommate issues. Sessions focus on empowering the student to continue toward education goals, or to re-evaluating curriculum and career plans with the individual's health in mind.

Counseling assists people by:

  • Providing a safe, accepting and confidential atmosphere to discuss problems, thoughts and feelings
  • Building a trusting relationship with an objective, trained professional 
  • Gaining new perspective on difficulties and developing ways to deal with them
  • Offering referrals to other support and opportunities to develop relationships with local therapists, self-help groups or substance-abuse agencies

Counseling appointments are available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. In times of crisis, walk-ins are welcome. 

Call us at (718) 409-7477.
