Counseling Services

College is an Exciting Time of Change and Personal Growth

At times, change may prove stressful. Therefore, Spelman College provides counseling services that support students in their emotional, social, and academic development throughout their college career.  Qualified mental health professionals provide services that support holistic development with an emphasis on the individual’s strengths.

Grounded in cultural knowledge and sensitivity, the services and interventions provided embrace the multiple identities of students, specifically the experiences of women of African descent.  A time limited treatment model is most often used, and external referrals offered when necessary.
