How Counseling Helps
Counseling is a confidential discussion between you and your professionally-trained counselor about personal, academic, emotional and career issues including: adjusting to school, deciding on a career or major, dealing with family or relationships, sexual orientation and identity or coping with personal crises.
Counseling helps you identify behaviors or ways of thinking that have not worked well and change them in ways that will improve your relationships, functioning, and moods.
Counseling helps develop decision making skills needed to meet the challenges of living and learning.
What to expect in your first counseling session?
During your initial assessment session, you and your counselor will explore your concerns and discuss what additional services may be helpful to you. After your initial assessment appointment, if your plan includes continued services at the PCGC, you will be assigned for regular scheduled appointments.
PCGC, greatly values students’ privacy and confidentiality. All information shared is between the student and the PCGC staff. No information will be disclosed to the academic and administrative staff. Personal information is not released from PCGC without a written consent from the student.
