Mental Health Services for College Students

Similar to many life transitions, the college and university experience can be both exciting and frightening. College students often find themselves struggling with making decisions, adjusting, socializing, and planning. This can lead to heightened symptoms of anxiety, loneliness, and symptoms of depression.

What can be even more difficult for these individuals is making decisions on how to deal with their symptoms. Many universities offer college counseling centers, however, they may not use the best approaches for each individual’s needs. HWP’s counseling services provide guidance in this area by helping you find root causes of mental health problems and providing solutions tailored to your needs.

What to Expect in College Counseling

College-related anxiety manifests itself in many different ways, from mild and common to extreme cases. Fear is a powerful emotion that can cause either real or imagined worries when it comes to our future plans for what will happen after college – even if we haven’t experienced these fears ourselves, they are still prevalent amongst other students feeling anxious about their futures as well.

HWP is unique in that it takes a different approach to therapy. It will help you get to the root cause of your symptoms and then work with you on short-term or long-term treatment based on how severe they are. Our team helps college students find out what their psychological problems might be by using an integrative approach for both mental and physical health issues while also looking at the severity of each problem’s symptoms.

Therapy can be a collaborative process. You’ll work with your therapist to identify specific concerns and together, you will develop skills and techniques that are tailored for coping in order to assist during these difficult times.

Who is it for?

HWP is an integrative counseling practice that offers counseling services to individuals who are preparing for college, currently in college, are planning to return to college, or are about to graduate college. The staff at HWP has experience working with many different types of anxiety and problem-solving situations that may come up during the college years.

Depending on your location and the practitioner you work with, these sessions can be conducted in person at our Alpharetta location, via video, or a combination of both. Schedule a free phone consultation today to learn more about our offerings and to learn more about how we can help you.
