These sessions are designed to provide students with a safe, supportive, and confidential space in which to discuss issues that may be causing distress and personal struggle, and supportive ways to manage stress.

Alexander College’s Registered Clinical Counselors provides Health and Wellness Counseling services with the option of meeting in-office, or virtually. Students can choose the appointment type they prefer at the time of booking the appointment.
