Counseling Center

In order to improve our service for students, we are making some changes to our web pages and scheduling process. If you would like to schedule an appointment to speak with a counselor, you can do so by emailing us at or calling 267-341-3222. Please leave the following information (Please do not leave other confidential information about your mental health in email or on voicemail as these means of communication are not guaranteed to be confidential) :

  • Your name
  • Student ID number
  • Best phone number to reach you

We will typically return your email within 1 business day to schedule an appointment for a telephone consultation with a Counselor. Due to COVID-19 health guidelines and restrictions, we will continue providing services via telephone and online platforms for the time being.

We are here to help.

College can be a demanding and stressful experience. Balancing academics, athletics, work, family, and a social life is challenging and often requires learning and applying new skills. Professional counselors are available to help you with your concerns and/or refer you to someone who can provide assistance.

The Counseling Center at Holy Family University serves as a free and confidential resource for current students. We are dedicated to helping students deal with issues that might interfere with academic performance and/or a sense of personal well-being. We seek to educate students holistically in the maintenance of good mental health, knowledge, and skills for healthy living.

University students visit the Counseling Center for many reasons. In addition to supporting general wellness and healthy living, some of the reasons students seek assistance include:

  • Alcohol and other drug abuse
  • Anger management
  • Anxiety/feeling overwhelmed
  • Concern about a friend
  • Cultural concerns
  • Eating concerns
  • Family concerns
  • Grief and loss issues
  • Parenting and unexpected pregnancy support
  • Relationship concerns
  • Resident Life concerns
    • The Counseling Center and Residence Life often collaborate to assist with concerns regarding living on campus, living with others, and being away from home for the first time
  • Risk of self-injury or harm to another
  • Sadness/feelings of depression
