The University Counseling Center espouses a philosophy of acceptance and respect, compassion and support for the individuals that we serve as well as toward each other. We work to create a warm, welcoming environment that expresses respect for the individual and their relationships. We hold a belief in the self-determination and growth of the individual. We seek to create and maintain a dynamic and fluid environment that allows for a sense of safety and trust to build in our clients and ourselves. We adopt a holistic view of ourselves – from being providers of psychological services for the University community (our clients), to working to meet the broader needs of our clients.
