“I love my counselor. She is always welcoming and caring and keeps the conversation going. After leaving, I always feel better.”
“Counseling through Cabrini has helped me to grow as a student and as a person. You can easily tell how much all of the counselors care about the students here.”
“I know I would not still be at Cabrini if it was not for their help. I am extremely thankful to them for all of their hard work and compassion.”
“I was shy at first about seeking help. I wasn't entirely sure of how I was supposed to go about setting up appointments, but the staff was very friendly, helpful, and patient.”
