Experiencing increased anxiety?


Discover Growth. Develop Confidence. Apply Balance.

University life presents a number of choices, challenges, and pressures — some exciting, some stressful. We support all our students with free, confidential professional counseling services around issues of stress, depression, anxiety, academic motivation, relationships, and more. We also provide counseling and education to prevent and cope with substance abuse and sexual assault.

Inclusion Statement

Recent violence, abroad and closer to home, affects all of us. It is natural and reasonable to feel anger, sorrow, despair, fear, powerlessness, defensiveness, frustration, confusion, hopelessness and/or numbness in response to the national and international climate and continued acts of aggression, oppression and brutality. The University Counseling Center recognizes the emotional toll that these events take on our students as individuals and our community as a whole and we are here to help without judgement, assumptions or bias. If you need a safe space to process, or if you want assistance coping, please schedule an appointment.

The UCC acknowledges the continued work of self-reflection, accountability, and openness to others necessary to create a community of inclusiveness, dignity and compassion. As such, we are committed to helping you on this journey, and committed to our own work towards intercultural competency. Please know that you are not alone, and that we are here to listen and to support you.

In crisis?

A counselor is on-call 24/7, 365 days a week. The counselor on-call is available 24/7, 365 by calling 504.865.3854. You will be immediately connected to a trained and licensed mental health professional.
