If you're stressed, please come talk with me, or other LBCC staff!

  • This is an "open door" invitation to each and every one of you to come talk with me, or other LBCC staff, if you find that you're under stress about your College work, possibly in combination with your off-campus work, family obligations, finances, etc. We have a number of strengths and resources available which you (and we staff) can call upon to help. The College experience can be stressful, especially in these "down" economic times. You're not alone - you're part of our LBCC community. We value you and care about you. My door, like so many others, is open (also my phone and especially e-mail, which I try to check 7 days a week). Please feel free to contact me, or other LBCC staff!
