Genuine care inspired by a sense of hope, healing, and resiliency through life struggles into human flourishing, leading to a more deeply enriched community.
Are you experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, anger and frustration struggles, family of origin concerns? Is your adjustment to college life not going as smoothly as you would like? Are you concerned about self-esteem or self-image issues, difficulties forming friendships, or intimacy matters? Drug and alcohol abuse, past or recent trauma, self-harm issues?
Take heart! We all experience some of these concerns, and many others, during the course of life, particularly at times of significant change like the period of late adolescence and early adulthood.
And that’s where we come in. We’re the UD counseling team, and our job is to work with you in responding effectively to whatever difficulties you might be facing. We are licensed therapists with wide and varying backgrounds in the mental health and wellness fields, as well as supporting fields such as education, chemical dependency, and ministry.
We are located in Haggar, upstairs in the Student Affairs Wing.
We provide short-term general therapy related to late adolescent and early adulthood issues (for example, personal identity and social and relationship concerns), college life issues (coping with the various challenges of university life such as managing time and interacting with new social groups), and psychological issues such as stress, depression, anxiety, self-esteem and self-image, and family of origin issues that interfere with a student's ability to be successful in life.
The most frequently noted concerns brought to therapy at UD are anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family issues, stress and coping, social skills. While no problem is too big or too small for counseling, our purpose is not to provide intensive treatment for severe, chronic, long-term mental illnesses, or specialized mental health struggles. If you or someone you know struggles with any of these, we can help connect to the specialists necessary to treat these difficulties.
If you, or someone you know is in immediate risk of bodily harm to themselves or someone else, please contact campus safety IMMEDIATELY, (972) 265-5911. If you are uncertain if they are at risk or immediate harm, or if you are just concerned about their well-being, you may fill out a brief CARE REPORT, which can be anonymous, or email us at email@example.com.
