Counseling Services

Counseling Services provides confidential counseling free of charge to assist undergraduate students with personal, developmental, or psychological concerns related to their academic progress and/or personal growth. Counseling is short-term, solution-focused with limited sessions. For chronic mental health issues or those that may require more extensive counseling, Counseling Services provides consultation and referral to community resources. 

NEW LOCATION! Counseling Services has relocated to 233 Leslie Campbell Avenue. Our office is in the one-level brick house beside Memorial Baptist Church and across the street from Bob Barker Hall Apartments/Suites. We are open and ready to serve students! Please come to the front door and we will be happy to work with you.



Services are available Monday through Friday by appointment.  For more information about Counseling Services or to make an appointment, please call Counseling Services’ staff at 910-814-5709/5708.

Undergraduate students (who are enrolled currently for full-time hours) are eligible for services.  Graduate and professional students are not eligible for services in our office, but are served by Dr. Dan Marlowe, Director of Behavioral Health for the School of Osteopathic Medicine.  Graduate and professional students interested in scheduling an appointment with Dr. Marlowe should contact him directly via email at [email protected]

NEW SERVICE! Counseling Services is pleased to announce we now provide substance abuse assessment and counseling for undergraduate students. These services are offered on Wednesdays and Thursdays. 

Location & Hours:  Counseling Services is located in the Lanier House on Leslie Campbell Avenue (beside Memorial Baptist Church and across the street from Bob Barker Hall Apartments/Suites).  Our hours of operation are from 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, and 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Friday.   Our office closes for lunch, typically from 12:00 - 1:15 p.m.


Counseling issues

Generally, people seek counseling because they are struggling with issues that affect the way they feel or inhibit their ability to go about their daily lives or meet their goals.  These issues can interfere with relationships, affect one's ability to concentrate on school or work, impact one's energy level, appetite, and sleep, and/or create feelings of depression, anxiety, and stress.  Specifically, people come to Counseling Services for a variety of reasons including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety/panic
  • Test anxiety
  • Stress management
  • Relationships
  • Time management
  • Conflict resolution
  • Feeling of insecurity and self-doubt
  • Homesickness and adjusting to campus life
  • Dealing with anger
  • Abuse issues
  • Grief


Confidentiality is a priority.  Our goal is to provide a safe environment in which to discuss personal issues.  If you seek counseling, you have a right to privacy.  This means that neither the fact that you have received counseling nor the specific issues discussed will be disclosed to anyone without your written permission.  Rare exceptions may occur in regards to safety issues or court orders.  A counseling record is kept for the Counselor's use only and is filed in a secure location.

What to expect - the first session

The initial session provides a time for you to get acquainted with your counselor and discuss the reason you are seeking counseling.  Information about your background will be gathered, and you will be given information about your rights as a client and about confidentiality.  Sometimes an initial session is all that is required.  Some issues are easily addressed, and in other cases, a referral to someone else who specializes in a particular area is appropriate.  If you and the counselor decide to continue to work together, a plan will be developed and the goals of counseling will be defined.  A follow-up appointment will be arranged at the close of the session.

After-hours assistance

Counseling Services provides crisis intervention during our hours of operation [Monday–Thursday (9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.), and Friday (9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.)].   If you are experiencing a crisis, call Counseling Services at 910-814-5709 or come to our office and MAKE IT CLEAR THAT YOU ARE IN CRISIS.  Every effort will be made to respond as soon as possible.  

If you are experiencing suicidal thoughts/actions or have a plan to harm yourself, from campus dial x1911 for Campus Safety immediately or from elsewhere, dial 911 or present to the nearest hospital immediately for assistance.  If you are experiencing another type of psychological emergency (emotional crisis) after our office hours, please contact Campus Safety (x1911), Residence Life Staff, and/or contact a crisis line.   If you reside off of campus, please call 911 for emergency situations.
