The mission of Counseling Services at Johnson College is to create an environment that promotes the academic, emotional, and personal growth of students.
Counseling Services offers individual and group sessions to students as well as psychoeducational programming and outreach. All supportive services on campus are free and confidential. Counseling Services strives to work with the entire campus community to create a culture of respect where similarities and differences among people are respected and honored.
In some cases, the Counselor may decide that a student’s needs would be best met through a community agency. Referrals to off-campus counseling/agencies may be made if a student’s needs exceed the supportive services that we provide on campus.
The Counseling and Disability Services office is located in the Moffat Student Center. Students may call or email to make an appointment or may stop by as the need dictates. Please contact Emily Holmes, Counselor/Manager of Disability Services, at email@example.com or (570) 702-8956.
Office hours are Monday thru Friday from 8:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Summer hours are by appointment only.
