Promoting psychological well-being, community, and academic success.

The Counseling & Student Development Center (formerly Psychological Services) offers a wide range of services to help make the college years more satisfying, rewarding, and productive. Our programs are designed to help students grow in self-understanding, to help them use their intellectual and emotional resources as effectively as possible, and to provide a supportive "safety net" at those times when they encounter difficult or painful life circumstances.

All services are free and strictly confidential. Our counselors and psychologists are trained mental health professionals with concentrated study on the specific developmental needs of college students.

Call 570.577.1604 to set up an appointment. Walk-in consultation: Monday - Friday from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. (first-come, first-served).

PLEASE NOTE: We do not counsel students via e-mail and cannot guarantee the confidentiality of e-mail communications with our office.


In an emergency, do not use e-mail to contact the Counseling & Student Development Center. Call 570.577.1604 or come to the office during business hours. || See more about what to do in a crisis.

About Counseling


People seek counseling for many reasons, ranging from a wish to solve a long-standing problem to a desire to enhance their personal growth.

To address the personal and educational needs of the students, the Counseling & Student Development Center offers individual and group counseling.

Students come in to discuss issues such as: roommate conflicts, anxiety and stress management, depression, eating disorders, career choices, and family concerns such as divorce and alcoholism.

Students may also receive psychiatric services if medication is considered essential to the treatment of their concerns.
