What kinds of concerns/issues do adult learners bring to counselors?

Adult learners bring any issues that interfere with their personal and academic success, such as stress management, test anxiety, relationship problems, family issues, general anxiety, depression, and interpersonal problems. The Center is developmental in nature and works from a brief therapy model so students are referred to professionals in the broader Wilkes-Barre community when their needs go beyond the expertise of the staff and the brief treatment model of the Center.

How can I make an appointment with a counselor?

Appointments are made by calling the Counseling Center (570) 674-6408 Monday through Friday between 8:30pm and 4:30pm or by stopping down to the Center (lower level of Alumnae Hall) between these hours. You can also email Dr. Cindy March, Director, at: srcindy@misericordia.edu.

How much do services cost?

Services are free to all matriculated students.

Are services confidential?

Yes. Professional counselors have an ethical and legal responsibility to hold any information shared in sessions as confidential. Exceptions to confidentiality have to do with safety issues, which counselors will review with you upon your intake session.

What other services does the Counseling Center offer?

Besides individual counseling services, the professional counseling staff offers personal development workshops each semester on such topics as stress management, healthy relationships, grief, assertiveness, eating disorders, test anxiety. Other services include consultation and referral services, and crisis intervention.
