Counseling Center

The Counseling Center serves all enrolled PC&TC students. Costs are covered through tuition and student fees, so there are no "out-of-pocket" expenses. 

The Counseling Center provides professional assistance to students experiencing a variety of personal and social problems. The staff consists of professionals trained in clinical practice and counseling.
 
Students come to the Counseling Center for a variety of reasons.  If you are in distress or if life is not working out the way you planned, it has been shown to be very beneficial to speak to someone about it. Some common concerns include:
- Adjusting to college life
- Transitioning into or out of college
- Stress
- Family problems
-Feeling sad or depressed
-Feeling anxious or overwhelmed
-Problems with drugs or alcohol use
-Identity issues (sexuality, gender, race, religion, disability)
-Concerns about sexual assault
 
Benefits of counseling include increased self-awareness, maximizing potential and making the college experience more productive and meaningful.
 
Appointments can be made by email to access@pierpont.edu, telephone (304) 333-3661,
or in person at Suite 316 Turley Center.
 
Hours: Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
