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.

Counseling Services is designed to meet the needs of Collin College students with compassion, honesty and confidentiality.

Once you begin classes at Collin College, you are eligible for counseling services.
We look forward to working with you. 

Counseling Services also offers virtual seminars on a variety of wellness topics throughout the semester.
