Counseling and Psychological Services

Counseling and Psychological Services facilitates students’ growth by focusing on values of self‑respect, respect for others, and self‑awareness.

The office emphasizes healthy and adaptive choices, reaching one’s fullest potential, and functioning successfully within the global and local community.

If you have concerns about a student or yourself, please call, email, or stop by.

Counseling and Psychological Services provides individual counseling, support groups, and health-focused events and resources. 

NOTE -- Counseling and Psychological services is currently closed for summer break.  The staff will return to the office on August 12, 2019.  If you are experiencing an emergency, please contact Public Safety at 610-902-8245, dial 911, or go to your nearest emergency room.

The Director of Counseling and Psychological Services will be available during the latter part of the summer, beginning July 1. If you have a question/inquiry at that time, please feel free to contact Dr. Alissa Brown at ab11458@cabrini.edu, and she will respond to emails when she is in the office beginning July 1.

Counseling Testimonials

“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.”
