FALL 2020 STUDENT DISCUSSION GROUPS

All groups will be held confidentially via Zoom with a licensed counselor from the Counseling Center.

Losing a loved one is sure to bring up an array of universal feelings of grief that so many of us experience, but losing someone during this pandemic is further complicated by the effects of isolation, a lack of closure, and a baseline of stress and anxiety that makes mourning distinctive during this time. This group is meant to help you connect with others who have also recently lost someone and are ready to begin to process these feelings. Please email Candice Post for more information.

The Loss of a Loved One Group is aimed for those who have experienced the grief associated with the death of a loved one and are looking for the support of others going through a similar experience. Please email Candice Post for more information.

The Freshmen Adjustment group is a source of support for first year students who are navigating the adjustment to college and the stress that transition brings. Students will have the opportunity to meet with other first-year students to normalize and process the difficulties that come with this time. Please email Tyme Rodriguez for more information.

The global pandemic has resulted in significant life changes for so many people. There are many uncertainties in our world that lead to a baseline and new normal of stress and anxiety. This group is meant as a means of connection for students looking for a source of support or a space to discuss experiences of stress related to the adjustment to the pandemic. Please email Natalie Sheridan for more information.

Normally, the Counseling Center is located in Health Services Building Room 206.
The building is located at the main entrance to campus, from Ithan Avenue, across from the Pavilion and the Business School.

Because of COVID, we are currently not operating out of the Health Services Building, so instead of stopping by our normal location, please contact us by phone. For everyone’s protection, your counseling will be provided by our staff, who are working remotely.
