  • Individual and Group Counseling
      • The first step to joining any group is to complete a triage appointment. Please visit our appointments page for information about how to schedule an appointment.
  • Reflecting Retrievers: Undergraduate Student Process Group
      • Provides a safe, confidential space for students to find a sense of connection and shared understanding as well as an opportunity to learn from others’ experiences. Members will also learn how to make new relationships and/or improve existing ones. The ultimate goal is for members to gain greater self-knowledge and develop more meaningful connections with friends, family, partners, etc. The group requires a semester-long commitment.
  • Graduate Student Support Group
      • Is a semester-long group geared towards students in masters’ and doctoral programs. This group is designed to provide a safe and confidential environment for graduate students to discuss the stress and challenges they’re facing being in grad school. Members will also have space to gain support for relational concerns and personal difficulties they may be experiencing. We hope that the group cultivates deep and meaningful conversations and contributes to group members’ emotional wellbeing.
  • Support Group for Transgender, Non-binary, and Gender Questioning Students
      • A semester-long, emotional support group for students who identify as trans, genderqueer, gender fluid, non-binary, bigender, and/or those who are questioning their gender identity.
  • Survivor First Group
      • Is a semester-long interpersonal processing group for students who have experienced sexual assault. This group is designed to provide a safe and confidential space for students to address how sexual trauma has impacted them and their ability to relate to others. The goal of the group is not to recount specific experiences of trauma in detail, but rather to help survivors learn new ways of connecting and relating to others. Survivor First is a gender-inclusive group.
  • Flexible and Balanced (FAB) Living
      • A 7-week group for students experiencing anxiety, depression, or stress-related to perfectionism. It is based on concepts and skills from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Through a combination of exercises and discussions, the group will help students recognize and begin to change unhealthy perfectionistic thoughts and behaviors (e.g., all-or-nothing thinking, setting unrealistic standards, negative self-talk, basing self-worth on achievement). Skills introduced include thought monitoring, challenging unhelpful thoughts, behavioral experiments, self-compassion, and mindfulness.
  • You’ve Got This
      • Is a 4-week program, based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy. It is intended to help students develop the tools that they need to cope with some of the challenges they experience in their day-to-day life. The program utilizes evidence-based skills and strategies designed to reduce symptoms of distress and increase positive coping strategies. Topics include mindfulness, thought as thought, emotion as emotion, and interpersonal effectiveness.
