Counseling Services

Our Mission

Counseling Services strives to educate and empower students to make realistic and attainable decisions as they pursue their academic, career, personal, and social goals.

How We Help

Many college students enrolled at PCC face academic pressures, financial struggles, family difficulties, and other personal issues or mental health challenges. College students need options and counseling support. Currently enrolled students can be seen by one of our Counselors. Contact with a counselor may be made in person, via email, or by phone. Counselors are available to assist students in need of brief solution-focused counseling. We also work in conjunction with community agencies for additional counseling services when extensive therapeutic care is needed. Student confidentiality is important to us and is protected except in circumstances explained in an established counseling session.

Counselors use a brief, solution-focused model of counseling. Some problems may be resolved in 1-3 sessions. We do not offer therapy or psychiatric services. Students needing these services will be referred to other professionals or agencies off-campus.
