Counseling for Faculty and Staff

Counseling for Faculty and Staff (CFS) is a supportive space where your well-being is our priority. Taking the step to prioritize your mental health is a positive and empowering choice, and we're here to guide you on that journey.

CFS provides counseling, consultation, training, and referrals for concerns that impact both your personal and professional lives. Services are provided for faculty, staff, and their immediate families.

Most people come to CFS because they have experienced difficulty in resolving an issue on their own and are looking for additional options or resources.

We offer free and confidential counseling, consultation, workshops and training seminars, and guidance for making referrals to colleagues or employees. We also offer consultation and training for managers and supervisors, program directors, and department chairs.

Get Started

Consultation is free and a great first step in the counseling process.

Making an appointment is easy and confidential. Our team of experienced counselors is dedicated to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all faculty and staff members and their immediate families.

Whether you're seeking assistance with work-related stress, personal challenges, or simply want someone to talk to, we are here to support you every step of the way.


Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
