"There is more on the surface than what our eyes can see." -Aaron Beck, PhD

The stress of school, the demands of academics, finances, socialization, marriage, and family can become overwhelming for students and we're here to help. Counseling Services offers assessment, psychotherapy, and consultation services to full-time students and dependents of our Brigham Young University–Hawaii community. We specialize in evidence-based clinical approaches for issues related to trauma, anxiety, stress, depression, interpersonal difficulties, anger management, and adjustment problems.

Telemental Health
Maintaining your mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic is equally as important as keeping up with your physical health. Students may now access Counseling Services through telemental health. If you are interested in meeting with a counselor through video chat, please fill out the Informed Consent form and call Counseling & Disability Services to schedule an appointment. Telemental health services may not be available in some areas as licensing restrictions apply.

Groups
Many students find support through shared experiences, through interacting in group counseling. As groups can change by the semester, contact Counseling Services front desk to find out what groups are offered.

Campus Outreach
The clinical team at Counseling Services enjoys spending time with students through clubs and organizations, residential activities, and classes. We offer presentations ranging from how to manage distressful situations to interpersonal skill building to suicide prevention. Please fill out a request form at least three weeks before the event so that we can be sure have it on our schedule.

Visit our campus lab page for announcements, upcoming activities, and exciting new research on mental health. We hope you join our page to offer feedback and your own insights as we strive to keep our “finger on the pulse” of campus and improve our services here at Counseling Services.

We look forward to working with you!
