Counseling Center

Towson University’s Counseling Center provides brief but comprehensive support services that promote the personal, social, and academic success of Towson University students. We help students learn to cope with the stresses of change and growth so that they can thrive during their college years and beyond.

Message from the counseling center 

Here are things you can do to strengthen your resilience: 

Balance: remind yourself of positive people and events. Maintain practices that have provided emotional relief in the past. 

Take care of yourself: eat well-balanced meals, exercise, and get plenty of rest.

Talk about it: talk with supportive people in your life or with others who have shared similar experiences. 

Do something productive: helping someone else often has the benefit of making you feel better. 

Honor your feelings: remember that is common to have a range of emotions following a traumatic incident be patient with and accepting of yourself and your feelings. 

Take a break: try to limit the amount of new you take in such as social media.

Counseling Center Diversity Statement

The staff members of the Towson University Counseling Center strive to affirm, promote and celebrate diversity. We are committed to be aware of and understand diversity in its broadest sense.

The staff at the Counseling Center values the importance of diversity for all individuals. People from every background are affected by issues of culture. Multicultural competence is therefore an essential component of our work with every client.

We all benefit from an understanding of how power, privilege, cultural identities (e.g. gender identity, race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, social class, and many others) and individual differences affect our daily experiences.

We recognize that students come to the center at various levels of comfort with these identities and therefore, make it a priority to meet students where they are. All of our lives are enhanced by a better understanding of the diverse world in which we live.
