It is the intent of Trine's counseling services to facilitate emotional and psychological development which can make a positive impact on academics, decision-making, and student retention. The counselor works to help students resolve problems that may impede personal, social, and academic functioning while emphasizing prevention, development, adjustment and overall wellness.

Students come to counseling for several different reasons including depression, anxiety, and relationship difficulties. In addition, it is quite common for students to experience overwhelming feelings of loneliness, isolation, disappointing academic results, and career indecision. Counseling services offers a healthy way to handle these challenges and stressors. The counselor will determine what services are the most appropriate for the student and if it is decided that the student's needs can be best met elsewhere, then a referral will be provided.
