Personal Counseling

Students encounter a great deal of stress during their University years (i.e., academic, social, family, work, financial). While most students cope with it successfully, others can become overwhelmed by the pressures.  To help students manage the demands of University life, we provide individual psychological and personal counseling services. Our licensed counselor can assist students in overcoming personal, academic, and/or crisis situations that could negatively impact their progress and success at Penn State New Kensington. Faculty and staff are also eligible for this confidential service.
