How I work
College students today report being more stressed, anxious, and depressed than previous generations. There are many reasons for this, and being in college often means facing dynamic and challenging times. My job is to help all students I work with find the best solutions for their unique circumstances, and I also want to help students make the most of their experience in college. My approach is grounded in the notion that students are the experts of their own lives. I am here to support students’ visions of how they might want to make changes in their lives, and to help students develop coping skills or strategies for difficult situations. I provide a safe, non-judgmental space for students to explore what is happening to them, and I honor each student’s values and background.
