Group Counseling

Group Counseling is highly effective for many student concerns. In group counseling, therapists facilitate discussion and interactions among individuals who are often struggling with similar concerns. Through this process, individuals can hear other's perspectives, feel connection through shared experience, and practice new ways of interacting and coping. Counseling Services offers different group counseling opportunities each semester. A pre-group interview is required with the group facilitator prior to joining a group. This helps to determine whether a group is likely to meet an individual student's needs and whether that student will fit well with a particular group's current composition. The groups being offered this semester are listed below.


  • Thursdays 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM (January 30-April 24)
  • BSC 211 
  • Facilitator: Veronica Umbrell

Do you  lack a sense of self-worth or self-love?  Please know you are not alone. 
While navigating the college years it’s not uncommon for students to question their identity. Please join me on a journey of confidence building.  This journey will review how low self-esteem develops and how this process can be undone. Topics of focus will include acceptance, compassion, judgment, self-talk, body image, insecurity, attitude and self-respect. You have the fearless courage it takes to improve your self-esteem!  All are welcome, join us!
