College of Humanities and Social Sciences Embedded Counseling

Explore personal, interpersonal, academic, and professional concerns that may be impacting your well-being with a counselor who knows the demands of studying in CHASS.

You can meet with the counselor at a location close to your classes — no need to go across campus to the Counseling Center!

Currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students and eligible postdocs in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences have access to these specialized counseling services through NC State’s Embedded Counseling program.

Your Counselor

Jenn Archer

Clinician, College of Humanities and Social Sciences

Meet Jenn Archer, Ph.D., HSP-P

Jenn’s collaborative counseling style uses elements of mindfulness to accept thoughts/feelings with curiosity instead of judgment. She also encourages her clients to reflect on the familial/cultural messages that influence how they view themselves and the world around them. Jenn strives to foster a supportive therapeutic relationship built on empathy and a dash of humor. Her hope is to create a space where clients feel empowered to live in tune with their values, goals, and identities and feel more capable of managing the ups and downs of college life. 

Jenn is originally from Southern Pines, NC and returned to NC after attending graduate school in Austin, TX. When not therapizing, she can be found working on various fiber arts, playing video games, or watching RuPaul’s Drag Race with her best friend. Her astrology big three are Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Taurus.
