Students are free to talk about any matter that is bothering them, large or small. Most students can benefit from speaking with a trained therapist in a safe, confidential, and nonjudgmental environment. Attention and guidance during the early phase of a problem may help prevent it from becoming more serious. Discussion topics may include: roommate difficulties, making the adjustment to being away from home, loneliness, family problems, procrastination, identity and self-esteem, relationship issues, eating problems, interpersonal conflicts, depression, sexuality, and cultural/ethnic concerns, among others.
