Connect With Us

We are here to help you succeed

The Counseling Center offers experienced professionals who can help you explore many different concerns. We value each person for their unique personality, perspective, background, and culture. Learn more about us.


Although students are on campus, the Counseling Center is continuing to provide remote services throughout this semester and will be meeting with students via Zoom. To adhere to public health guidelines, individuals are not permitted to enter the Counseling Center without prior authorization from our staff. Please call 410-617-2273 to schedule an appointment or speak with a member of our staff for details.

There are three options for a first-time appointment with a counselor. The first option is Let’s Talk, a solution-focused single session. Your second option is an initial assessment. You would choose this option if you are more interested in short-term or on-going counseling. The third option is a consultation appointment to discuss concerns about another Loyola student. We are also offering a wide range of group and workshop services. Additional information about our full range of services can be found online.

Counseling Center Statement on Ongoing Racial Injustice and Violence

The Counseling Center joins the rest of the Loyola community in expressing our grief, sorrow and compassion for the racial injustices and tragedies that have been occurring across our nation. These events have impacted all of us and reflect a longstanding and entrenched history of structural and systemic injustice and racism that we condemn and are dedicated to addressing. 

We would like to recognize the reports of hate crimes experienced by the Asian community - particularly in light of COVID-19, locally and nationally. In the aftermath of experiencing or witnessing this trauma, it is normal to experience a range of feelings and emotions, such as shock, fear, sadness, anger, helplessness, or guilt. 

Please consider Racial Violence & Injustice resources for people of color and those seeking to promote anti-racism and engage in allyship. You can also find additional resources on Anti-racism and White Accountability and from the Office of Equity and Inclusion

Students may contact us by phone to speak with a counselor or schedule an appointment, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., at 410-617-2273. For support outside our business hours, please call 410-617-5530 to speak with an after-hours counselor. 

Loyola Counseling Center Land Acknowledgement

The staff at the Counseling Center humbly acknowledges and honors the Indigenous communities whose ancestral homelands and resources were stolen and colonized in the creation of this nation, state and campus. We recognize the Piscataway, Nanticoke and Lumbee as past, present, and future caretakers of this land.

A land acknowledgement is a small and insufficient step towards correcting the narrative and injustice of colonialism both past and present. While this small act will never erase the atrocities that have been endured by Indigenous peoples both locally and around the world, it is a part of our ongoing commitment to uplifting the sovereignty of Indigenous communities. We are therefore committed to resisting the oppression that takes many forms, including the attack on mental health, threat to the environment, and continued violence caused by systems of racism.

The Counseling Center is excited to offer new drop-in support space(s) for students:

Let’s Connect Now: drop in affinity spaces for BIPOC students and LGBTQIA+ students.
