SHAW Counseling Services, Boone & Ames Hunziker Center

​Students can meet with our counselor for a brief consultation session to determine which resources are the best fit for their presenting issues. During this meeting students share an overview of their presenting issues and goals. Students are provided with information and recommendations regarding relevant resources on campus and in the community. We can work together to determine a plan for moving forward to best assist the student needs.

All counseling services are confidential and free for registered students.

Please contact Rebekah Lauritzen to schedule a counseling appointment at Student Health and Wellness.
