Message from the Director

Welcome to Our University Mental Health Services at the PCC

Thank you for visiting the Psychological and Counseling Center (PCC) website. I’m honored by and enthusiastic about the opportunity to lead the PCC team of outstanding mental health providers during this academic year.

The PCC clinical team is fully committed to the belief that mental health and wellness is the result of a concerted effort that requires the continual pursuit of clinical excellence. Our team meets regularly to assess clinical progress and to sharpen expertise in the areas of trauma, diversity and inclusion, skill-based groups, substance use, and psychophysiological regulation.

I encourage you to review our services and schedule a phone appointment with a PCC clinician. Your needs and goals will be assessed and you will be directed to the service(s) that most adequately meets your needs. Please keep in mind that some services and recommendations may include referrals to campus partners such as the Center for Student Wellbeing and the Student Health Center, as well as to community partners.

We look forward to working with you toward the achievement of your personal and academic goals.
