What Our Clients Say

Client Survey Feedback

"Being able to talk to someone so committed to helping me is exactly what has helped me so much to become a more confident person."

"Just having somebody to talk to without the fear of being judged or criticized is one of the most comforting things on the planet, and I feel like this service is provided at the health center."

"Talking to someone with professional advice vs. just listening to your friends. Having an unbiased opinion. Having a place to go with any concerns and knowing it would stay confidential."

"My counselor is dedicated to helping me and doesn't dismiss anything I say or feel and tries his hardest to get an understanding of the position I'm in so he can give me the best feedback and advice possible."

"It really is a great program that allows students to be in their own comfort zone, but they are still able to better themselves. It really helps with coping or finding new ideas, solutions, or approches with any circumstance."

"I was contemplating suicide a few times and the only thing that kept me going was knowing that I'd feel better after my counseling session. Three months later and I'm counselor free and absolutely loving life. She helped me see myself and the world in a completely different light and reminded me how strong I am as an individual."

"It helped me to learn more about the counseling relationship and work through some long-standing issues regarding my family of origin."

"The thing I found most helpful from counseling was learning to better manage my anxiety than I had in the past. It helped me gain techniques to calm down and also helped me learn sleeping techniques."
