In keeping with our philosophy of promoting positive mental health and safety, Counseling Services assists SFA students in overcoming obstacles to their personal and academic goals. We accomplish this through individual and group counseling for students and through outreach, presentations, training and consultation for the campus community.
Counseling Services respects and values diversity. We recognize the necessity and benefit of living and learning in a multifaceted society. We are devoted to honoring differences including those represented by gender, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, religious beliefs, social/economic class, outward appearance, body size/shape, disability, national origin, impairment and political ideology. We commit to upholding this value in our personal lives, as well as in our interactions with clients and other members of the SFA community.
