Here are some helpful resources for those who are enrolled in our College Mental Wellness IOP or for any student who faces the challenge of managing college life and school.
How to create a study plan
A study plan is an organized schedule outlining study times and learning goals. Just like with work or school schedules, college students should develop a schedule that sets aside dedicated time each week for studying. This schedule should include dates of quizzes, tests, and exams, as well as deadlines for papers and projects.

Family estrangement, simply put, is a loss or a termination of a relationship that previously existed between family members. An estrangement can occur between two people or multiple family members. An estrangement can occur between a parent and a child, sibling to sibling, a child to a parent or grandparent, or any combination you can imagine. Family estrangements can occur at any age. Estrangements in young adults are most common, however, as this is when a person is more financially stable and no longer dependent on their parents for the necessities. Family estrangements do not discriminate. There is no single population that is predisposed to estrangements. Family estrangements can affect any culture, socioeconomic group, profession, religion, or gender.
Best Wishes to You this Summer!

A genuine thank you to all of you who tolerated our necessary move to virtual sessions during the pandemic. Below is a summary generally outlining what to expect upon our return. We will continue to see those who prefer to be seen virtually through our platform using Zoom. Of course, this is contingent upon insurance allowances for teletherapy/virtual sessions.
