Counseling | Technical College of the LowCountry



TCL provides short-term personal counseling services for: anxiety, depression, test anxiety, grief, crisis, relationships, sexual assault, alcohol and drug abuse, academic worries, family/living issues, or any other issue of concern.

In addition, group workshops will be offered during each semester.  Details will be e-mailed to your TCL account and will be announced on Facebook. Also look for fliers posted around campus.

All information is strictly confidential between student and counselor. Counseling records are not part of your academic file and will only be released with students’ written consent. Counselor is required by law to break confidentiality if a student says he/she want to harm themselves, want to harm someone else, or report child or elder abuse. This is to keep everyone safe!

Office hours on the Beaufort campus are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday from 8:00 am-5:30 pm and Friday from 8:00 am -11:30am. The office is located in Building 1 room 204.

Office hours on the New River Campus are from 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. on Tuesdays. The office is located in room 213 on the second floor.

Please call 843-525-8288 or e-mail to make an appointment to speak with the counselor. While appointments are strongly recommended, walk-ins are available for students in crisis.

TCL Counseling Services are free to all currently enrolled students.
