What is Counseling?
Counseling is a process by which individuals learn to make better decisions, improve personal skills, develop increased confidence, and acquire a keener awareness or appreciation of their needs and those of others. A wide variety of concerns can be discussed in counseling such as choosing or changing a major, exploring career opportunities, improving communication with parents or friends, changing behavior patterns, learning effective time management, overcoming depression, or coping with anxiety.
Counseling and Psychological Services facilitates the academic, career, and personal development of students at Frostburg State University. Services are provided on a voluntary basis, by appointment and without charge to students. All conversations are kept confidential. This means that no record of counseling is made on an academic transcript or in a job placement file, and information about counseling is not released without the student's written permission or as required by law.
The staff of Counseling and Psychological Services consists of licensed psychologists, licensed professional counselors, a psychiatrist (part time), and graduate practicum students.
