* Schedule with Melissa Begay for a Mind/Body Session *
MindBody appointments are an integration of several physical and energy-based techniques designed to reduce stress and its effects on our physical body. Each appointment is a unique opportunity to connect with your body, find deep relaxation, and learn tools to support well-being. The appointments are hands on and patients remain fully dressed in comfortable, loose clothing.
People dealing with acute or chronic stress, anxiety, pain, or hormonal issues. People who feel healthy and want to create a strong foundation for maintaining well-being. MindBody appointments are a nice complement to Behavioral Health care.

Scope of Our Clinical Services
The Counseling Center utilizes a brief, solution-focused counseling model in which individual therapy sessions are offered on a short-term basis designed to help students manage immediate problems and provide short-term solution-focused therapy to facilitate adjustment to college. These services are ideal for issues that have arisen recently or that are expected to resolve relatively quickly. Brief Therapy is often about bringing successes into the client's awareness which tends to increase hopefulness. The goal is for clinicians work as quickly as possible to facilitate adjustment, healthy functioning, problem resolution, symptom relief, reduction of emotional distress, and increase resilience with students to continue attending college and pursue their personal, but more specifically their academic goals. Students who would like to speak with a clinician regarding a concern, but are not considering therapy at the Counseling Center for themselves, may schedule a “consultation.”
