College is an exciting time, and it can also be very overwhelming and stressful. Here in the Counseling Center, we understand that. Out staff is comprised of professionally trained clinicians, licensed by the State of New York, who can assist you with a wide variety of concerns. It is our belief that the college experience is all about learning and growing, both professionally and personally. Our work focuses on helping students gain the maximum benefit from their whole experience here at UC! WE CAN HELP WITH QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS ABOUT:
WILL YOU TALK TO MY PARENTS?
- Adjusting to life on campus
- Eating disorders
- Sleep problems
- Relationship/family problems
- Alcohol/Drug concerns
- Suicidal thoughts
- and much more!
Information shared during counseling sessions is kept confidential, and records kept by the Counseling Center are not part of your student file at Utica College. No one outside the counseling center has access to your counseling records without your permission. Without your permission, we will not and cannot update or inform your parents, family, friends, faculty or staff on your involvement with our services. However, if we at any time are concerned for your safety, or the safety of others, we may need to reach out to those supports in the event of an emergency.
