Group Counseling

One of the most effective tools for addressing issues common among college students and for many, it can be more effective than individual counseling. A student may be referred to group during Triage if your counselor believes that your needs would be best met in a group setting. Typically meets on a weekly basis.


Learn concrete skills to address and manage anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationship issues, or academic concerns. Offered on a weekly, drop-in basis.

Individual Counseling

Individual sessions are typically offered on a short-term, biweekly basis with a mental health professional to address the common concerns faced by college students. Approximately 73% of Marist students receiving individual counseling meet for 1-5 sessions. When a student’s concerns require more specialized or longer-term counseling, Counseling Services may recommend and assist them in connecting with a provider off-campus or close to home.
