Personal Counseling Services

Our Edgewood College students and community have had much to cope with in the recent weeks and months, including the Derek Chauvin trial following the murder of George Floyd. A range of emotional reactions are to be expected. Please know we are here to support you through these times. We are still accepting new clients and will continue to do so through the end of the semester. If you have an urgent need, please share that when you call or e-mail so we can ensure you’re seen right away.
