The Counseling Center offers various counseling groups, psycho-educational groups, and support groups during the fall and spring semesters. Contact the Center at (703) 526-6861 or visit our Facebook Page for more information regarding group offerings.

If a student is already receiving individual counseling at the Counseling Center, the student should speak with his or her counselor to discuss group counseling opportunities. A student who is not currently receiving individual counseling from the Counseling Center should contact the Center at (703) 526-6861 and inform the receptionist about his or her interest in group counseling. In both cases, an initial, one-on-one appointment will be scheduled with a group leader before referral to group counseling.
