Personal Counseling Services
Confidential, individual counseling sessions with a trained & experienced counselor are available to any student at Concordia, free of charge. You can make an appointment for a single session, or arrange for a weekly time slot. You are never obligated to continue, but if you choose to, we offer flexible hours and we'll work with your schedule.
Our center also offers pre-engagement and pre-marital counseling for students anticipating marriage. You'll explore issues like communication, conflict-resolution, spirituality, family planning and more. This is an excellent resource for couples.
You have the right to confidential communication with your counselor. Information revealed by you will be kept strictly confidential and will not be revealed to anyone without your written permission. However there are certain exceptions in which the counselor may be required by law to reveal information:
- Any present evidence of child, elder, and disabled person abuse.
- The threat of bodily harm to yourself or others.
- In the case of a legitimate subpoena issued by a court of law.
Your sense of comfort and security is very important to us and we take that seriously.
