Group Therapy

Students often find themselves feeling isolated or alone in their challenges, experiences, thoughts, and feelings. Group Therapy allows students to feel understood, supported, and encouraged by their peers in a safe, supportive, and confidential space. Groups are free for currently enrolled students, meet weekly for 60 to 90 minutes, include up to 10 participants, and are facilitated by clinical staff members. The UCC offers a variety of groups based upon the unique needs and interest areas of the University students.

If you are interested in a group, please contact the Counseling Center to learn more!
