Counseling Services

 
Herbert W. Hoover Foundation Counseling Center
At Counseling Services, our focus is your success – both at Kent State University at Stark and beyond. Located in the Lower Level of the Campus Center, Counseling Services offers students individual therapy sessions, educational workshops and training programs for students and the campus community.

Comfortable, professional, and private, Counseling Services offers students the opportunity to pursue free, confidential individual therapy. Sessions are available all year, allowing students to focus on regaining balance, empowerment, promoting healing, and self reflection to make changes in their academic and personal lives. When things are becoming difficult, not going the way you want, or when you feel that other people don’t understand or don’t know how to help – Counseling Services is here for you!

No matter what is bothering you – burn out, family issues, relationship problems, anger management, stress, worry and anxiety, a recent loss, self esteem issues, sexual identity, drug or alcohol problems, or any other mental health related concern – Counseling Services will help you find what best fits your needs to enhance your success and improve your life.
