Why See A Counselor?
For academic advisors, go to KCC Counselor directory link
Counselors at KCC work with students to find the best path to reach their goals and be successful. Success in life makes us feel happy and healthy as relates to classes, a degree, career, or personal issues. When there is something blocking the path, it may be a good idea to see a counselor.
Counseling is a process of sharing thoughts and feelings in confidence with someone who is objective and who is a good listener. Counselors help students by discussing new approaches to solving a problem, by giving needed information, through referral to a helpful organization in the community, by helping to clarify thoughts and feelings, or just through listening.
