Counseling Services

College is a time of tremendous growth, excitement, and increased independence for most students. It’s a time to step outside your comfort zone, to meet new people, face new experiences and build new friendships.

Often, college life can bring with it responsibilities you may never have had to shoulder on your own. Sometimes, the demands of balancing work, classes and social activities can become stressful or overwhelming, and you may need someone to talk to or a place to turn for guidance.

These feelings are common, and the staff at ASU’s Counseling Center is experienced at helping students adjust to the demands of college life and cope with many other issues that may arise during these years of growth and transition. We offer a number of services to help students experience academic achievement, as well as personal, emotional and social growth.
