Professional counselors are skilled listeners who provide support, help you explore your issues, and help you develop coping skills for success in and out of the classroom. Respect for diversity is a guiding principle in the work we do. Counseling services are free and confidential for students who are enrolled in classes at the College of Staten Island. Medication Services are provided by our Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner for students who are engaged in counseling at the Counseling Center.
