Our professional therapists provide support to students to help them navigate stress, anxiety, depression, work & academic issues, family & relationship concerns, and many other challenges that life can present. 

Our therapists will meet with students to determine if services through CCA are the best option, or if needed, assist students with referrals to community-based organizations and resources.
