Counseling

Feeling stressed out? You're not alone. College can be fun, but it can also be very difficult to juggle school, work, family and friends.

Like most people, you probably know ways to cope with stress. But if you start feeling overwhelmed or anxious, seeing a college counselor can help you find practical solutions to personal and/or academic problems.

What Is Counseling?

Dallas County Community College District recognizes that you’re a whole person – not just a student. Your academic success depends on your personal development and emotional health.

A professional counselor can help you identify, understand and develop skills to resolve your educational, career and personal issues. He or she will assist you in learning how to find your own pathway to success in college and in the workplace.

Our counselors are licensed professionals and are highly qualified specialists with master’s or doctoral degrees. They offer crisis intervention; brief, solution-focused counseling; and referrals to other agencies or services. They can provide educational and career guidance as well as individual and group personal counseling.

Community Mental Health Resources

In addition to our college counseling services, many community mental health resources are available to help you or other people you care about — for free or at a low cost.
