College can be an amazing time in a person’s life. However, it is also a time of great personal and emotional change. Because of this, we have made a commitment to provide services that aid in making healthy decisions and changes. It is the counseling office’s goal to see each person reach their highest potential and to assist them in building personal and interpersonal skills needed to maximize future success and contentment.

Counseling provides a supportive environment to talk openly and confidentially about personal or academic issues, and to work toward changes in one’s thoughts, feelings, behaviors, relationships, and/or life situation. With the utmost sensitivity and compassion for individual uniqueness and differences, the BVU counseling office grants assistance to all students by providing individual, group, and relationship counseling at no additional cost.

The counseling office also provides educational programming, referrals for treatment at on-campus or off-campus sites, and consultation services to anyone at BVU.
