    Individual Counseling

    Students meet with a counselor to conduct an initial evaluation. 

    Walk-Ins for Initial Assessment take place on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays 9AM-Noon and 1PM-3PM.  Students complete information on an iPad and then meet with a counselor to conduct an initial evaluation.

    Based on the evaluation and nature of the concern, the counselor will develop a counseling plan with the student.

    Professional counselors provide assessment, evaluation, and short-term counseling to enrolled students. Students who require extended or specialized counseling may be referred to other mental health services in the area.

    Couples Counseling

    Students who are both currently enrolled at Gannon can meet with a counselor for short-term couples counseling. If interested, each student needs to complete a separate initial assessment during walk-in hours.

    Group Counseling

    Students experiencing common concerns (anxiety, eating disorder, self esteem, relationship problems) may benefit from a group counseling appointment. Groups are formed based on counselor assessment and student interest. Information on community groups is available.


    A variety of self-help, developmental, and skill building workshops are offered to faculty, students, and groups and organizations. Topics include self esteem building, stress management, self/time management techniques, relaxation methods, eating disorders, alcohol issues, relationship building, and many more. Contact a counselor to arrange a workshop.

    Somebody I know Needs Help

    If you are concerned about a friend, roommate, family member, and you are not sure what to do, then you can consult with a counselor. A counselor will listen to your concerns and work with you to develop possible options for you to use.
