Counseling at Collin College:
Collin College Counselors aim to support our students' success by offering counseling
services to help maintain a safe and healthy learning environment. Students seek counseling
for a variety of reasons, which include but aren't limited to: depression, anxiety,
relationship issues, trauma, general wellness, domestic violence/abuse, academic concerns,
alcohol/drug addiction, gender identity, eating/body image, stress, etc.
All issues are taken seriously, and no problem is "too small" to discuss.

Once you begin classes at Collin College, you are eligible for counseling services.
We look forward to working with you. Contact us to schedule an appointment.
What you say in counseling will be treated by all Counseling Center staff with strict confidentiality. Your information is protected by state and federal laws and will not be disclosed to anyone outside Counseling Services without your written permission.
In some instances, when, in the judgment of the counselor, you or someone else is in imminent danger, your permission may not be needed. Other possible exceptions will be discussed in your first session.
Counseling records are considered personal health information and are protected by federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) statutes.
