Counseling Services

Whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student, a transfer or international student, university life can at times be stressful or overwhelming. When you need help sorting out a personal issue, feel overly stressed, anxious or depressed, Counseling Services can provide an objective person to talk with. Our psychologists can help you clarify your values, goals, and identify options particularly if these issues are interfering with your academic life and/or causing difficulty in other areas. Counseling can also help you in your relationships with others and build self-confidence. Meetings are confidential and no information is released about your counseling without your written consent. Counseling Services also provides group therapy on a number of topics as well as phone counseling evenings, weekends, and holidays at (805) 893-4411.

Counseling Services has peer advisors trained in stress management techniques who can help you learn to cope with the stresses of university life. Come visit the egg and massage chairs for relaxation and stress management. Relaxation and Massage workshops are offered throughout the year.

We look forward to helping you as you navigate your way through UCSB. Our services are supported by your registration fees. Please stop by, visit our website at www.counseling.ucsb.edu, or call (805) 893-4411 for more information.
