Clarkson College works with Arbor Family Counseling to offer students confidential short-term individual counseling sessions with a licensed counselor on campus. The details and course of counseling are worked out collaboratively by the student and the counselor. Short-term counseling allows the student to work on immediate concerns and, typically, come to a resolution. An appropriate referral may be made for further counseling or therapeutic services.

Common concerns addressed in counseling include:

  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Cyber-bullying
  • Low self-esteem
  • Drug & alcohol concerns
  • ADD & ADHD
  • Test anxiety
  • Grief
  • Family conflict
  • Communication problems
  • Eating disorders
  • Self-destructive behaviors
