CAR is happy to introduce our counselor Michele Barber!
CAR’s counseling services are free to students with disabilities and provide an opportunity for students to explore concerns and problems with a professional counselor in a confidential setting. The college years are a time of accelerated growth, significant challenges and considerable stress. CAR’s counseling service is here to help you with the variety of concerns that arise during these intense years.
Lane Community College students with disabilities can meet individually with a counselor by making an appointment. CAR’s counseling service assists you in developing skills; increasing academic success; and living a happy balanced life.
Students come for counseling to address:
- testing anxiety
- adjusting from high school to college
- self-advocacy strategies
- much more!
