Who We Are

Xavier Counseling Services is committed to student wellbeing and care for the whole person. Emotional health is a critical topic for college students - particularly in light of the traumatic experiences that our society is facing.  We also recognize that making the first appointment with a therapist can be intimidating. It may even be the most difficult step in your journey to wellness. You are not alone. We support you and will be right along with you as you take steps to improve your mental health and well-being.

The clinical psychologists and counselors on staff at Xavier Counseling Services are licensed in the state of Ohio, offering the same quality of service that is available in a private practice. In addition, Xavier University is a designated JED Campus, a nationwide initiative designed to guide schools through a collaborative process of developing comprehensive systems, programs and policies with customized support to build upon existing student mental health, substance abuse and suicide prevention efforts.

If you would like to learn more about treatment options, please call Counseling Services at (513) 745-3022 x2 to schedule an appointment.
