Counseling Services

At University Counseling Services, we offer you a welcoming place. Visit us to share your stories, triumphs, and struggles during your career at OCU. We want to show you how learning new tools and finding your authenticity in expression can help to positively impact your mental and holistic well-being. 

A unique college experience, where we all deserve to be seen 

Your sense of self and your mental health can impact your daily life:

  • It can challenge your identity and life experience.
  • It can create new narratives and obstacles previously never encountered.
  • It can be affected by environmental and societal factors, particularly if you are part of a marginalized community.

University Counseling supports your right to be who you are openly and without fear

  • We promote healthy lifestyles and support academic success by helping you access quality mental health services.
  • We empower you by inspiring hope and acknowledging your dignity.
  • Asking for some assistance may not always be easy, but it can help. If you are struggling, have questions, or would like someone to talk to, please contact our office

We are eager to be educated on who you are, how you define yourself, and how you want to be understood!
