Counseling Services

Trocaire College offers individual counseling appointments to all students free of charge. For many, the college years mark an important time of personal growth and change. Individual counseling can help you improve your ability to manage life stressors in more healthy ways to work towards reaching your full potential. It is the goal of counseling services to help students towards achieving personal, social, and academic success.

Common reasons students may seek counseling may include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Grief or Loss
  • Relationship concerns
  • Academic stress
  • Low self-esteem
  • Substance abuse
  • Self-Injury or Suicidal thoughts

If a needed service cannot be provided, appropriate community referrals will be made.

Self-Help Resources

The Student Counseling Virtual Pamphlet Collection was developed by Dr. Robert Hsiung and can be accessed through the University of Chicago’s Virtual Pamphlet Collection. This collection of pamphlets contains a variety of topics that have been published by Counseling Centers across the nation to be used a resource. A virtual pamphlet put out by another university may refer to services available only on that campus, and  you should contact The Student Counseling Office at Trocaire to talk about what on-campus counseling services are available.

To schedule a counseling appointment, or find out more information if counseling may be beneficial for you, contact our Student Counselor Lauren Ellis, LCSW at 716.827.2412,, or stop by Room 122 . Walk in appointments welcome when available.

If you are struggling emotionally and in need of emergency assistance and our staff counselor is not available, please contact Crisis Services (24 hour Hotline) at 716-834-3131 or call 911.
