Counseling Center

18 Maple Terrace, x2451

The Counseling Center offers students a place to confidentially discuss issues, problems, or feelings that are important to them in reaching their potential. The members of the Counseling staff are committed to assisting students to grow towards greater independence in making mature choices, and taking responsible action for themselves and towards others, as well as for their education and career. Students come to the Counseling Center to address various issues including relationship conflicts, college adjustment, academic stress, depression and anxiety, family stress, sexuality, and healthy lifestyles. The Center maintains a resource library to provide helpful information on stress management and relaxation techniques, substance abuse, eating disorders, dating violence, anger, grief, communication, and self-esteem. A Health Educator works in the center, along with Peer Health Educators, to provide educational programs designed to promote healthy lifestyles and relationships.

The professional counseling staff is available to work with students individually and through group programs. Short-term counseling, referral services, and workshops are provided at no cost. Counseling is confidential and privacy is respected. Appointments can be made by calling 617-243-2451, or by stopping by the Reception Desk at the Health Services Office in the Edwards Student Center, or by contacting a member of the counseling staff at 18 Maple Terrace. During the academic year, the Counseling Center Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday. For those students needing care beyond the scope of our clinical services (for example: weekly psychotherapy, psychiatric medication management, or specialized substance abuse or intensive mental health treatment), the staff in the Counseling Center can assist students in referrals to services in the local community, using the student’s health insurance or in coordination with the student’s professional provider in his/her home community.
