Counseling Services Mission: 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 the development of new ways of relating, thinking, and behaving. Sometimes adjusting to these changes, requires additional support. Therapy can assist you in learning and applying skills as well as by coaching you to use these skills effectively in everyday life. Professional Counselors are available at Counseling Services to help you with your concerns and/or refer you to someone who can provide you with additional assistance.

Counseling Services at Holy Family University provides free and confidential services to currently enrolled, full-time students as well as part-time students at the discretion of the center’s director. We provide services that are central to the overall mission of the university. These services are short-term and aimed at helping students be successful academically and develop to their fullest potential as people. Services focus on developing and educating students about mental health and wellness including teaching skills that help them self-reflect, problem solve, cope with difficult emotions, and establish healthy relationships and interactions with others.

We strive to offer these services in an atmosphere that is welcoming and comfortable for all students, regardless of race, sex, gender identity, ethnic background, age, sexual orientation, citizenship, or ability.
