Counseling Services

The mission of Counseling Services is to support the intellectual, emotional, social, and cultural development of students in a multicultural environment. The staff values an atmosphere that is welcoming and comfortable for all students regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, religion, citizenship or disability.


Counseling Services offers free, confidential, varied services to students of the Boston, Worcester, and Manchester campuses. These include:

  • Short-term individual and couples counseling
  • Crisis management
  • Psycho-educational workshops and programs
  • A resource and referral service
  • Consultation to student groups, faculty, and the college community

Counselors typically work with students troubled by specific problems or general concerns such as:

  • Stress management
  • Adjustment to college
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Family and relationship problems
  • Substance abuse
  • Sexuality
  • Sexual orientation
  • Cultural issues

Following an initial intake appointment, students work with a counselor and are offered treatment based on a short term model (usually 4-8 sessions) or, if appropriate, students are referred to an outside treatment provider. Upon completion of these sessions, treatment needs are reviewed to determine whether continued treatment with Counseling Services or referral to an outside provider is indicated.
