Counseling is here for support

Counseling Services help students deal with life issues which impact their academic or personal lives.  Counselors are trained to address any personal issue that students might be facing. 

See what our Pioneer students are saying about our counseling services below!

  • ''I feel like I have grown as a person and have found ways to cope with my feelings and have gotten to know myself better too. (My counselor) is amazing!''
  • ''I have seen counselors occasionally in the past but they have not felt like a good fit. (My counselor at East Bay) makes me feel heard, respected, and understood.''
  • ''My experience has been amazing . . . Being able to share what I was feeling and going through made all the difference.''
  • ''Each counseling session was such a safe and therapeutic space for me to address all my issues and concerns. . . My counselor was absolutely fantastic.''
  • ''Counseling has helped me have hope to finish the school year and be a happier person.” “It helped me in ways I couldn't imagine and at a time when I was self destructing and did not know where to turn.''
  • ''My counselor was able to help me better understand myself and the things I was going through.''
  • ''(My counselor) saved my life. . . I am eternally grateful that this service was available to me, and that I got the care I need.''
  • ''This experience has brought on new changes in my life I didn't think were possible and it feels really good. I felt like I don't have to be stuck on the "bad days" all the time.''
  • ''(My counselor) really helped to make me realize how dangerous of a situation I was in. She did so in a way that made me feel encouraged to seek help. . . Speaking to her was like speaking to a close friend.''
  • ''I feel calmer, happier and more equipped to handle challenging situations. I wish I would have started counseling a long time ago!''
  • ''I was a bit scared because I had never gone to counseling before and did not know how to start, but my counselor made it easy and comfortable for me to open up.''
