Five plants, small to large in ascending order from left to right

The Counseling Training Clinic offers SCSU students academically-oriented group and individual counseling to manage academic stress, build skills for coping with University life, and connect with the SCSU community.

Group Counseling at the Clinic is designed for students with high levels of stress or seeking additional support to cope with obstacles in college. Groups focus on exploring barriers, identifying solutions and putting skills into action in a safe and comfortable environment.

Individual Counseling at the Clinic involves meeting one-on-one with an advanced graduate counseling student. Students may privately discuss their academic or personal challenges and meet goals tailored to specific needs.

Group and individual counseling at the Clinic is provided under the supervision of SCSU faculty and is private and confidential. Services are provided in the Counseling Training Clinic, 208 Davis Hall and virtually on a limited basis.
