Counseling vs. One-on-one Conversations
Counseling One-on-one Conversations
Counseling is a service that supports college students by providing effective treatment for mental health concerns. One-on-one Conversations with a Well-being Ambassador is a service that supports college students by enhancing holistic well-being, health, and success through empowering conversations about strengths and goals.
Counseling center staff are licensed mental health professionals. Well-being ambassadors are graduate and undergraduate students who have participated in semester-long training as well-being ambassadors.
Counseling staff collect information about you and your concerns and work with you to decide how to best address them. Counseling staff will come alongside you on your journey toward resolving or managing these concerns. Ambassadors believe you are the expert in what you need, and help you identify and trust your distinctive voice so that you can make decisions that are most appropriate for your preferred outcomes.
