Counseling can assist students in dealing with the challenges that college life brings. It can help to develop and strengthen skills to overcome new challenges or ones that have been impacting your life for a while. Each member of the Counseling Services staff has more than 10 years of experience helping individuals to improve their mental health and wellbeing. Counseling Services is a confidential place where students can come to discuss a variety of issues impacting their functioning to ensure academic success. The decision about which type of service is appropriate is based on many factors. Our goal in the Counseling Center is to find the most effective and efficient way to meet each student’s needs.
Individual therapy offered at The University of Tampa is a 45-minute session with a licensed professional. Students may also be seen for medication appointments. Students who are in need of more frequent or intensive services will receive personalized off-campus referral based on the student’s preferences and needs.
Support groups are also available through Counseling Services. Topics and meeting times vary per semester. Please contact Connie McCullough, director of Counseling Services, for more information.
