Personal Counseling

Home / RCC Student Services / Advising & Counseling / Personal Counseling

Sometimes life happens when you’re in college. If you find that you are dealing with personal issues that are affecting your life (academic work, relationships, outlook on life), we have staff who can talk with you and help you find appropriate resources to help you deal with these issues.

The Advising & Counseling Center is a safe place to come for assistance and we want to support you when life becomes difficult to manage.

Ms. Heather Simons, Counselor, is available to assist you as someone with whom you can talk in a confidential manner. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor with wide experience in working with college students and a wide range of issues, such as relationship and family issues, substances abuse, and other matters that might suggest additional or prolonged assistance. She is a former counselor at Daymark Recovery Services and is able to assist with referrals of students for additional counseling needs when these are identified.
