Individual counseling is available at Cook Counseling Center for students who experience a wide variety of personal, academic and relationship problems. No problem should be seen as too small to be discussed with our counselors.

Because of high demand and relatively limited resources, Cook Counseling Center works on a focused therapy model. The student and therapist will identify an area of concern for their work and establish goals for therapy. Appointments will be scheduled approximately every two to three weeks. When the issue is resolved, the student is welcome to continue to participate in our group therapy program. For problems involving more extensive work, referral to a community provider is recommended.

Student difficulties might include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Eating issues
  • Loneliness
  • Feelings of inadequacy
  • Problems studying
  • Problems relating to others
  • Sexual concerns
  • Excessive use of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Couples issues
