Kolligian named director of counseling services

Sept. 27, 2004, 10:21 a.m.

John Kolligian, director of Georgetown University's counseling and psychiatric service, has been named director of the counseling and psychological services unit of Princeton University Health Services.

Kolligian, whose appointment is effective immediately, has directed the clinical and administrative operations at Georgetown's counseling service since 2003. Prior to that, he spent nine years as a senior psychologist and coordinator of psychology training at Columbia University. His clinical interests include adolescent self-esteem and identity development, psychological trauma, and stress and coping among highly successful individuals.

"I'm excited about becoming an active participant in a university culture that is firmly committed to advancing the health, mental health and wellness of its community," Kolligian said. "For me, there's nothing more meaningful than playing a facilitating role in our students' psychological development, health and well-being -- whether it be removing impediments to learning or expediting emotional growth. At Princeton, we have all the ingredients to raise the bar for how a campus community-based health care model can work and flourish."
