Our Commitment

Our Counseling philosophy is built on a framework that affirms the uniqueness and potential of individual students while embracing the richness of diversity. We are committed to social justice and supporting awareness and change at the individual and community levels. We strive to create a confidential, affirming, and nonjudgmental space that acknowledges the impact of prejudice, discrimination, oppression, power, and privilege. We are committed to respecting the complexities of students’ identities and life experiences.
