Counseling Center

A Clarkson University education is more than what you learn in class. It is also a time to grow, become more self confident, and prepare for the ups and downs of life. Clarkson University Counseling Services assists students in reaching their full potential for social and emotional development.  Counseling is a proactive way to manage challenges and difficulties, gain perspective, and take responsibility for your emotional welfare.

The counselor-student relationship provides a unique opportunity to explore important issues and identify resources that will lead to personal growth.  During your initial appointment, you and your counselor will discuss the issues that brought you to counseling and work on developing a treatment plan to address your concerns.  Students seek counseling for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to:

  • Relationship issues
  • Adjustment to change
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Sexual assault or harassment
  • Body image
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Sexuality
  • Self-esteem 


Counseling services are open to all enrolled, full time and part-time students.
