Self-care is Important

Charleston Southern University’s Counseling Services office offers professional mental health services in the form of personal counseling from a faith-informed, multicultural perspective. Our counselors are familiar with using nonfaith-based approaches if that is preferred, along with biblical or integrative approaches (Christian theology and psychology). Our goal is always to work with students in a collaborative, goal-oriented counseling approach.

We offer short-term, professional services for a wide range of issues including (but not limited to):

  • Depression
  • Generalized Anxiety
  • Social Anxiety
  • Eating Concerns
  • Academic Problems
  • Anger Management
  • Substance Abuse
  • Relationship Issues
  • Stress and Time Management
