When you leave a message or email us, we will send you all the necessary paperwork to be completed ahead of time or when you arrive a few minutes before your first appointment. 

Counseling Services provides free individual, group and couples counseling for Simpson students, as well as prevention and consultation services for the college community, and assistance with connecting to community-based counselors.

Some of the more common concerns include difficulty with friends, roommates, or family members; depression and anxiety; sexual identity; lack of motivation or difficulty relaxing, concentrating or studying; eating disorders; substance abuse; sexual assault and sexual abuse recovery; and uncertainties about personal values and beliefs.
