When college students have serious difficulty coping with school and social stress, or other mental health challenges, they may find themselves backed into a corner without a lot of good options. Often, the school counseling center isn't equipped to provide support beyond once-weekly appointments. What other options are there?
A personal, intensive counseling retreat can fill this gap in services. It focuses primarily, but not exclusively, on skills-based treatments, proven to reduce unhelpful nervous system reactivity, increase emotional resilience, and build self-compassion and self-regulation. The counseling is geared toward the all-important application of the coping skills in real-life stressful situations that would be anticipated post-retreat.
