Oakland Community College

We Are...

We are here to listen . . . not to work miracles.

We are here to help you discover what you are feeling . . . not to make feelings go away.

We are here to help you identify your options . . . not to decide for you what you should do.

We are here to discuss steps with you . . . not to take the steps for you.

We are here to help you discover you can help yourself . . . not to take responsibility for you.

We are here to help you discover your own strength . . . not to rescue you and leave you still vulnerable.

We are here to help you learn to choose . . . not to make it unnecessary for you to make difficult choices.

We are here to provide support for change.
