Counseling and Psychological Services

Life as a college student demands personal strengths and problem-solving skills. Nearly every college student experiences a time when more strength and skill is needed. Counseling and Psychological Services provides confidential psychotherapy and individual problem solving counseling which provides and teaches the necessary strengths and skills. Any problem that is of concern to a student is an appropriate problem to bring to the counseling center. Professional psychotherapy, mental health counseling, learning disability consultation and addictions treatment are also available without charge. Please call (910) 630-7150 to make an appointment. Further information is located in the Counseling and Psychological Services link under Our Services.


Our counselors are legally bound to hold the information you share with us in confidence. We adhere to ethical and professional standards at all times as well as following HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability) guidelines. We may disclose client information without prior consent in certain cases to protect clients and others. These instances include when a client poses a threat to harm themselves or someone else, possible abuse of a child, or when we are ordered by a judge or court.

If you provide consent, the counselor may share information. Please speak with the counselor if you need further clarification in reference to confidentiality.

Parent Information

The Center for Personal Development welcomes inquiries from parents. We will be happy to discuss the services which we offer students as well as information on how to encourage them to make an appointment. Please note that due to state and federal law, once a student has made an appointment, all information about that individual will be kept confidential and can only be released with the signed permission of the student.
