Introduction to Counseling and Wellness

Boston Conservatory at Berklee encourages students to make physical and emotional health a priority in their lives. We believe that wellness is an essential foundation for personal and artistic development throughout one's life. A department within Student Affairs, the conservatory counseling and wellness department as a whole strives to provide students with education, consultation, counseling, and resources that promote healthy lifestyles now and in the future.

The Counseling and Wellness supports the whole student: body, mind, and spirit. We partner with students to provide and connect them with resources that encourage growth, validate needs, and challenge barriers to promote an inclusive, compassionate community. Counseling and Wellness is available to help students achieve a greater sense of wellness through counseling, education, and connection with community resources.
