Information about Counseling Services for Students

The Counseling Services staff provides personal counseling services for currently enrolled OTC students. We provide our services primarily in a private office setting, meeting one-on-one with a counselor.

Personal Counseling

“Personal counseling” (sometimes referred to as mental-health counseling) is sought by individuals (or small groups) who have issues in their lives which are interfering with their life satisfaction. Common examples of “personal counseling” issues may include (but are not limited to) struggles with anxiety (test, performance, and/or generalized anxiety), depression, stress and relationship communication. Other issues counselors work with are abuse, grief, or post-traumatic stress disorder. Counselors are available to work with minors (under the age of 18) for personal counseling issues. However, a minor will need to obtain parent or guardian permission if he/she wishes to participate in more than one personal counseling session.
