The Student Counseling Center

The Counseling Center offers a professional, confidential, and safe environment where all concerns of the student are treated with dignity and respect. Using a holistic approach to counseling, the counseling staff provides educational encouragement and support for a healthy mind, body, and spirit. We are also here to assist you with your college experience and will offer personal counseling, group support, and/or referrals depending on your individual need. No personal conflict or concern is considered too great or too small; and confidentiality is our top priority.

"There is no charge for these services, whether you are living on or off campus."

Students come to counseling for many reasons. Counseling offers you the opportunity to learn about yourself and how to resolve personal problems. It is often helpful to talk with someone who is not personally involved with your situation and who can offer a different perspective to your situation.

We can offer help if you are experiencing anxiety about your academic performance, having difficulties adjusting to college life and pressures, dealing with family problems or the loss of someone close to you, have a drug or alcohol problem, or other concerns that may arise.

The Counseling Center is dedicated to serviing our population with tools that will enhance a healthy life-style and offer a meaningful personal and educational experience here at Hilbert. Seminars and workshops will be available throughout the year and will be advertised in the school newspaper and posted around campus.

A wide range of resource materials concerning mental health and wellness issues are also available to all students free of charge and located on the first floor of Saint Joseph's Hall.
