Joining a group offers the opportunity to build connections, develop coping skills, and engage with a counselor in a group setting with other students.

Our Approach

Group therapy, skills series, and counseling workshops are effective and powerful forms of therapy. In groups, students not only have the chance to share their experiences, but can also hear from peers. Sharing stories can help us to feel less alone, since we are all figuring out how to live and learn together, understanding aspects of our identities, and more.

Some groups and programs are:

  • open and anyone can join 
  • drop-in and anyone can attend any number of sessions at any time
  • registration required and completing a form, interview, or other screening process is required

Current Offerings :

This group is for students interested in exploring how they cope with stress, tolerate difficult emotions, reduce negative self-talk, improve feelings of self-worth, and develop stronger connections within relationships. The aims of the group are to explore how we show up within relationships, give and receive feedback, and try on new roles based on what we have learned. This includes learning communication skills and identifying and expressing emotions. Understanding Self and Others Within Relationships is a powerful space for learning, self-change, and empowerment of one-another.

Wise Mind is a short-term group offering skills to take a step back, manage emotions, and choose a better way forward. The term Wise Mind comes from the idea that emotions and logic can be blended to guide us toward healthy choices. The skill areas that will be discussed include managing emotions, communication and boundaries. 

  If interested, please contact Leila McVeigh.

We all “know” that nobody is perfect, yet our expectations, especially of ourselves often don’t match this reality.

This group will be helpful for students who struggle with perfectionism and want to learn ways to disempower it.  This will be a place to connect with other students who are also interested in learning about how perfectionism plays a role in their lives.

Here and Now is a mindfulness resource that will focus on how we relate to the stress in our lives. We will explore mindfulness concepts that include cultivating a sense of ease, being present, staying with what is difficult, and working with thoughts and emotions. We will practice brief guided mindfulness exercises to encourage calm awareness.  

There is no need to register or attend every session. Students may drop in when they are able. Questions can be directed to Leila McVeigh.
