Personal & Wellness Counseling Services
Some words of advice from our personal wellness counselors:
Encourage your daughter to temper her expectations of how much can be done in one sitting. Remind her to stay hydrated, move her body, get outside, and unplug from social media from time to time. It’s also good for her to do what she can to stay connected socially...this could be through texting, FaceTime, Zoom, whatever works for her! It’s amazing how much of a difference that can make for all our spirits.
Our wellness counselors will be available to our students via email and Zoom appointments. They will also continue to send communications regularly to the students with tips for de-stressing and managing anxiety during this time. They will also send some light-hearted silliness to help them feel connected. Please see the information below if you’d like to reach out to one of our counselors:
