Counseling

DSCC's Counselor/ADA Coordinator offers a variety of services to all students. The goal of the Counselor is to assist with student development and student success, helping students make wise personal and professional choices. 

This is accomplished by:

  • Helping students sort out difficulties in their lives that might be interfering with their ability to do school work;
  • Providing college-wide programing on relevant topics;
  • Presenting on various topics to classes upon request;
  • Serving as a referral source to help meet student needs via community resources and various media available;
  • Providing short term individual counseling;
  • Assisting students with the exploration of personal and professional choices.
