Who We Are
The counseling center staff includes a licensed professional counselor and a licensed clinical social worker. Services are free and when necessary students are referred to area specialists.
Why We Are Here
College is a time of change, growth and transition. The emphasis is on learning during this time in your life, but college is also a time to explore your ability to cope with stress, adapt to change, form relationships, balance work and play and make personal decisions.
Who Can Use It
The counselors at the Abbey are here to help you when presented with the challenges of taking responsibility for your personal growth. During the course of your years at the Abbey, you may want help and guidance in dealing with the everyday stresses of college life, self-confidence, emotions or finding your personal values. This is why we are here.
Currently enrolled students of the Abbey may use the counseling center free of charge. If another agency or person may better meet a student’s needs, he or she is referred on a voluntary basis to that source. If a student is referred to an off-campus therapist, he or she will be responsible for all fees.
Our services are strictly confidential within all legal limits and all files are kept separate from academic records. No information is released to administration, faculty or parents without a student's written authorization.
Faculty and staff who may be concerned about a student, or whom a student has asked for advice, should review this information for an understanding of their role.
You can call the counseling center at the numbers listed to set up an appointment. All messages on the voice mail are confidential. You may also come by the Counseling Center to make an appointment in person.
We are located in the Wellness Center- bottom level of the Haid Building- entrance around back. Call 704-461-5081

It is presented as a public service to Intoximeters web site visitors. Its primary purpose is to provide useful information about the responsible use of alcohol.
