Counseling Center

counseling center

The Saint Xavier Counseling Center is staffed by professional counselors licensed in the State of Illinois and is dedicated to the mental, emotional and developmental health of our students. We provide a thorough intake/triage assessment process to determine the needs of students seeking service. After this evaluation is completed, students may receive short-term, solution-focused counseling with a counselor in the Counseling Center, or will receive a referral for off campus services from an extensive network of providers. Where appropriate, referrals will be made in concert with the VA. If a referral is given, a counselor will help the student make the connection and provide follow-up to make sure the services are meeting their needs.

In addition, the Counseling Center has yearly confidential screenings for anxiety, depression and alcohol related issues.

Employers look for the entire "package" when selecting good candidates to fill their positions. In particular, they generally seek out candidates who possess strong skills in the areas of teamwork, discipline, time management, leadership, problem solving and communication. Candidates who have completed any amount of military service exhibit all of these characteristics. These qualities, coupled with the academic skills enhanced by a college education, truly give veterans a competitive edge in the job market.
