Personal Counseling

Need help with career, academic, or personal support? 

It is not uncommon to need the support of a skilled listener to help you set goals, guide you in hearing your own voice, or simply support you through a rough time.

Fortunately, assistance is located right here on campus. Longview's counselors, with a wide variety of resources and community contacts, are here to provide you with that support. The following are examples of some of the issues counselors can assist you with:

  • Adjustment to college
  • Goal setting
  • Stress Management
  • Relationships
  • Communication
  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Sexuality
  • Mental health concerns
  • Grief and loss
  • Time Management

We offer a discussion handout called "What should I expect from personal counseling?" (PDF) to help define the purpose, roles, and goals of any one-on-one counseling sessions you may be considering.

Students are encouraged to use our services that are free and confidential. Our office is open for appointments from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. (Monday-Thursday) and 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. (Friday). To schedule an appointment with a counselor please call the Counseling Center at 816.604.1000.
