Counseling Services

Counseling is here to help you deal with the transitions, challenges and overall experience of life while at Lawrence. Counseling involves a relationship between a client and a counselor who has the training and willingness to help reach one's goals and succeed at Lawrence. You can come to us when dealing with academic stress, roommate issues, anxiety, relationship questions or when you simply feel down about something.

The average number of sessions per student is between three and six meetings, but we do not have a set limit on the number of sessions a student may receive. We try to balance the demand for services with the severity of the issue so that we generally can see students for as long as needed.
