Mental Health Counseling

Sterling College offers short-term counseling services free to any of our students. The purpose of providing counseling services to our students is to improve their academic performance and their emotional and spiritual well-being. Research indicates that students who were struggling socially or emotionally were more likely to either drop out of school or transfer. We aim to reach out to those students, so that their college experience can be more enjoyable and successful.

Services are provided by Teri Anderson, LMLP a licensed master's level psychologist. Our services include:

  • Mental Health Assessment
  • Crisis Evaluation and Intervention
  • Individual Counseling
  • Psycho-educational Groups
  • Referral Services

These services are confidential in nature. Your records are confidential and separate from any other record on campus. The content of our sessions is confidential unless you are an imminent threat to yourself or another; you report the ongoing abuse of a minor; if you are under 18 yourself or if I am subpoenaed.
