Counseling & Care

At the Study Center, our directors are available for pastoral counseling and for students at all times; however, we know that there are occasions where professional counseling is needed. To fill this need, the Study Center offers professional counseling services here in the building for students (both undergrad and graduate) and other individuals in the UVA community.

Amy Zell is a part-time counselor on staff at the Study Center. As our Director of Counseling Resources, Amy is available for personal counseling or to serve as a resource to direct you towards the care you need. Staff members such as Ethan Hightower and Katie Hightower are also available to care for students in need.

We also partner with a local Christian ministry, New City Counseling, to provide counseling for students in our building  We refer students to their services as well as others in the Charlottesville area.
