Individual Counseling

“A joyful life is an individual creation that cannot be copied from a recipe.”
-Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience

Counseling is a collaborative effort between the counselor and client. Individual therapy is generally time-limited but strict session limits have been eliminated. Services will be based on each student’s specific needs. Individual counseling is only available to students residing in Georgia. Contact for referrals near you if you are not residing in Georgia.
