Counseling Services

The Office of Counseling Services is located in The Kanbar Campus Center, Suite 323. 

Counseling for personal concerns—including anxiety, adjustment to college, depression, stress, misuse or abuse of alcohol or other drugs, and other issues—is available to all full-time students at no charge. Counseling is provided on a short-term basis by licensed professionals who understand the special needs of university students. Referrals to area agencies and practitioners are made for those who need more specialized or long-term care. Students are encouraged to make appointments in advance by calling ext. 2868 or sending an email to counselingservices@philau.edu.

Students experiencing more urgent concerns are directed to use the Drop-In Hour, 4 to 5 p.m. each weekday during the regular academic year. All information shared with counselors is held in strict confidence, as long as there is no clear and imminent danger to the student or others.
