Counseling Services

At times, university life can be difficult and stressful. Students may feel unsure about themselves, their ability to relate to others, their capabilities and their future plans. They may feel that things just aren’t coming together as planned. Often, students need someone who will listen to them and help them sort things through. The counseling services at Holton Health and Wellness Services (HHWS) facilitate a safe environment in which students can share their concerns with a professional counselor as they develop strategies to successfully navigate their lives.

The Director of Counseling Services, Carrie Dashner, is located in HHWS, in the lower level of the Student Life Center. Counseling services are free to every student.

To schedule an appointment, email the director at and include a schedule of available days and times you are able to meet.

Counseling sessions are scheduled by appointment between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
