A Message From the Director

Dear Spelmanite,

Vickie OgunaldeWelcome to your journey of self-discovery. College is an exciting time of personal, intellectual and social growth. As Spelman College helps cultivate and support students who accept the charge to change the world, we also want to foster emotional and psychological development that further allows our students to succeed and flourish. While greeted with experiences that bring you a new sense of awareness, stress and uncertainty about navigating uncharted territories can flood your thoughts. That is where the Counseling Center can be helpful. We are here to provide you with extra support while you cope with issues that interfere with your college experience.

The Counseling Center offers free and confidential services to all currently enrolled students. Our licensed mental health professionals are grounded in womanist perspectives that aim to support and empower the interconnecting and complex experiences of the whole person and how intersectionality impacts women of African descent lived experiences. We strive to help students manage their emotional well-being when the stress and demands of life and school affect their path towards success.

We offer a stepped care model approach that allows you to determine your desired level of support ranging from least to most intensive. If you are ready to see how counseling can support you, contact the front desk at 404-270-5293 to schedule an appointment. Services are available for Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

We look forward to working alongside you,
Counseling Center Staff
