“Dr. Tyson was very professional and helpful in our session. We talked for about an hour, and she gave me some very good insight in trying to help me out with my issues.”

“Kari was wonderful to work with. I felt very comfortable speaking with her. She gave me tools to help empower me to take control of my anxieties.”

“The counseling center helped me tremendously! I felt like I was able to express my feelings without judgment and was very comfortable with the staff.”

“Dr. Tyson is incredible, she loves her work, and you can tell. She is such a valuable part of the CON. I will continue to advocate that ALL students should schedule appointments with the counseling center every semester just to talk things through and get a handle on the stressors of a graduate level program; it will help you balance all the other aspects of life!”

“Highly recommend this program. I am successful because of God and the counseling center. I could not have continued throughout my program without the staff and support from the counseling center.”
