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. Counseling Services is a confidential place where students can come to discuss a variety of issues impacting their functioning to ensure academic success. Counseling Services is committed to providing a safe and caring environment where students’ needs are met.
Individual therapy at The University of Tampa consists of 45-50 minute sessions with a counseling professional. Students may also be seen for medication appointments.
