Counseling Services 

At Counseling Services, the focus is on the student's success. The Kent State University Geauga and Twinsburg Academic Center Counseling Services have offices in Student Services both at Burton and at Twinsburg Academic 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 during fall and spring semesters, allowing students to focus on regaining balance, empowerment, promoting healing, and self-reflection to make changes in their academic and personal lives.
