The mission of Counseling Services is to provide students with opportunities for personal, emotional, and academic development and to help guide students towards successful completion of their college education. Additionally, in accordance with Goodwin College's mission, Counseling Services seeks to foster lifelong learning and to promote civic responsibility. Our therapists will:
- Provide a safe and nurturing environment where students can identify and align their personal goals with their academic goals;
- Collaborate with faculty and staff to help students develop self-knowledge, strategies, and coping skills necessary to succeed personally, academically, and professionally; and
- Provide individual counseling for any issue including, but not limited to bereavement support, emotional difficulties, domestic violence, and substance abuse.
Students who take advantage of these services will enjoy a one-on-one relationship with a therapist. Group sessions are also formed throughout the year on a needs basis.
Referrals to the therapist can be made by faculty, staff or self-referral. Every referral remains confidential. More information about these resources can be found on the Counseling Services website at http://www.goodwin.edu/counseling/ or call 860-913-2072 or 860-913-2043.
