Rock Valley College Student Support Services

Personal Counseling

Personal counseling is available to Rock Valley College students who  are seeking help with issues that are more personal in nature. These may include help dealing with life situations, anxiety, self-esteem, or even help honing problem solving or decision making skills. Additionally, Rock Valley's personal counselors can provide crisis counseling and referrals to community and private mental health agencies.  Personal and Success counseling is housed on the second floor of the Student Center.
