Groups & Workshops

Participation in one of our groups or workshops provides a safe and supportive place to discuss your concerns and learn coping skills with others who may have similar challenges. A group can be a wonderful source of feedback, support, good humor, and creative ideas for how to cope with personal or interpersonal challenges. Groups are led by clinicians and participants are expected to honor confidentiality.

Spectrum Support Group

The Spectrum Support Group is for students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning. The group is intended to provide a safe space for SSG students to discuss common experiences related to their sexual identity, sexual orientation, and gender identity and expression. Typical topics include relationships, family, campus climate, development of community, societal issues, and self-care, among others.

Life After Loss

Life After Loss is a counseling and support group for students who have experienced loss. Please join us for conversation, comfort, and support. 

The Productivity Circle

Counseling Services, in collaboration with Academic Resource Center, offers a group for students who would like to learn more skills to manage symptoms of ADHD. A formal diagnosis of ADHD is not necessary to attend. This group emphasizes psychoeducation about ADHD and how it may impact a student in college. Students learn strategies to increase success in academia, build new habits to improve overall wellness, and gain support for making the transition to college. This group emphasizes the strengths and talents of students with ADHD. 

Dancing Mindfulness


The Dancing Mindfulness Group is a weekly meditation practice that uses dance as a means of achieving mindful awareness. Over the course of this practice, you will learn to better focus your attention, and be present in the moment with your breath, and the simplest of movements. This 10-week group will help you build the skills needed to increase your ability to relax, cope with stressful situations, release tensions and increase energy. A brief 30 minute meeting with the group facilitator is required before starting the group.


The Dancing Mindfulness Monthly Workshop, held the 2nd Thursday of the month, offers students the opportunity to engage in a mindfulness practice involving movement. The workshop is designed to help students cultivate moment-to-moment awareness through gentle movement, focus on the breath, and the encouragement of a kinder, more compassionate way of relating to their mind and body
