Counseling Services offers comprehensive clinical services to the full-time undergraduate and residential graduate students of Manhattanville College free of charge. We offer individual, group, couple, and family therapy, as well as consultations, assessments, psychiatric evaluations, crisis intervention, and referrals. We also have a wellness room that includes a massage chair, a lightbox, and biofeedback.
Individual Counseling provides students with an opportunity to discuss a variety of issues in a safe, confidential and supportive environment. Such issues may include adjustment difficulties, homesickness, relationship stress, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, family discord, gender and sexual identity, alcohol and substance abuse, eating disorders, and many others.
Counseling Services follows a brief therapy model in order to accommodate the entire student body. During your first session, you and your counselor will determine how Counseling Services can best meet your needs. If a student requires long term counseling or their issues are beyond the scope of Counseling Services, a referral to an off-campus mental health provider may become necessary. If this is the case, Counseling Services will work with the student on locating and transitioning to an outside provider.

The purpose of this group is to get up and get your body stretched and moving! With having online classes, we find ourselves sitting behind a computer not only for class, but also to do homework and attend meetings as well. We sit all day, and our bodies can get stiff. Physically, stretching can help get your blood pumping throughout your body and get yourself moving even for a short period of time. It can help us prevent feeling stiff from sitting behind the computer all day. Mentally, stretching gives you a break! It helps give your mind something to focus on other than school or any potential stressors you may be facing. It takes you away from other distractions and allows you to do something for you! It can help you clear your mind, focus on giving your body some movement, and take a break to help you feel ready to go back and tackle whatever task you have next. For questions and concerns contact email@example.com.
Specific dates and times to be determined by member's availability and interest. Please call us, SHAC at (914)323-5155 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about these exciting group opportunities!
