CWS counselors are psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, mental health counselors, nurse practitioners, and advanced trainees in those professions. Our counselors are diverse in background and expertise. They are well equipped to work with students confronting a broad range of issues including, but not limited to, substance use, LGBTQ+ concerns, eating disorders, interpersonal conflicts, identity issues and a host of other concerns. We also have counselors embedded in various schools and programs across the University: CAS, Gallatin, Law, Dental, Social Work, Steinhardt, Tisch, Stern, Silver, CMEP, Islamic Center and Athletics.
