The Ignatian ideal of cura personalis — care of the whole person — guides the work we do at the Counseling Center. The Counseling Center contributes to the Holy Cross community by offering a range of psychological services to meet the mental health needs of students.
Our primary goal is to support students negotiating their transition into adulthood. Students normally encounter a variety of challenges during college.
We provide confidential assistance to students who have a wide range of concerns, such as stress, adjustment difficulties, relationship problems, anxiety, and depression. Many students seek our services to help them through these challenges. We work collaboratively with students to promote their academic success and personal growth during their years at Holy Cross.
The Counseling Center is accredited by the International Accreditation of Counseling Services.
Counseling Center Land Acknowledgment
With deep respect, we formally acknowledge that the land we work, learn, and gather on was originally inhabited by the Indigenous people of the Nipmuc tribal nation. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide, slavery, and being forced onto reservations. We hope this small gesture helps to honor the Nipmuc people and the ongoing connection they have with the land. Learn more »
