University life is exciting but can also be very challenging. Our staff of licensed mental health professionals, as well as resident therapists and graduate/doctoral interns, help students meet the demands of college effectively and help support their personal, social, and intellectual growth and development. As part of the Division of Student Affairs, Talley Center for Counseling Services is committed to furthering student development, especially in Wellness, Leadership, and Citizenship. The counseling center supports both the academic mission of the University of Mary Washington and the ‘out-of-class learning’ experience by providing individual and group counseling services to full-time degree-seeking students enrolled on the Fredericksburg campus. We offer crisis intervention, consultation, community referrals, and training and educational outreach programs to the entire UMW community.
If you have questions regarding our department that are not addressed here, please stop by our office or call and we will be happy to help! You’ll find friendly and welcoming staff at the counseling center who understand that sometimes, it’s hard to reach out. We will do our best to answer your questions and make you feel comfortable.
