Diversity Statement

At Counseling & Psychological Services, we are committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all students. We see diversity and culture as broad and inclusive and provide culturally competent services to fit your needs as you walk in our doors. We strive to understand and explore the intersection of diversity, environment, emotions, and health. Our staff comes from a variety of backgrounds so we are able to provide multifaceted approaches to therapy.  

We understand that some students might be hesitant to come to counseling out of concern of being misunderstood or judged because of their identity or beliefs. We strive to create a safe and affirming climate where students can feel comfortable exploring the importance of their identity and life experiences with regard to diversity and how this might relate to the questions and issues students would like to address in counseling. As a staff we are multicultural, multidisciplinary, and multitheoretical and understand how the intersectionality of identity, experience, and academics can lead to success. 

In addition to our services, we work closely with the FSU community to facilitate awareness, increase knowledge, and train skills related to diversity. We can work with students to identify additional campus and community resources that could be helpful and affirm their identity as a multicultural individual. Some of these resources include Safe Zone, the Center for Global Engagement, and the Office of Accessibility Services.

We are here to help you succeed and strive to support a campus community where all students feel safe and affirmed.
