There is no charge for these services, whether you are living on or off campus.
Students come to counseling for many reasons. Counseling offers you the opportunity to learn about yourself and how to resolve personal problems. It is often helpful to talk with someone who is not personally involved with your situation and who can offer a different perspective to your situation.
We can offer help if you are experiencing anxiety about your academic performance, having difficulties adjusting to college life and pressures, dealing with family problems or the loss of someone close to you, have a drug or alcohol problem, or other concerns that may arise.
The Counseling Center is dedicated to serving our population with tools that will enhance a healthy life-style and offer a meaningful personal and educational experience here at Hilbert. Seminars and workshops will be available throughout the year and will be advertised in the school newspaper and posted around campus.
A wide range of resource materials concerning mental health and wellness issues are also available to all students free of charge and located on the first floor of Saint Joseph's Hall.
The Counseling Center is founded on the belief that even the most successful and dedicated student occasionally can use guidance and support. Our services include but are not limited to:
Support groups are for students who share a particular issue, such as a family member with an alcohol problem or relationship issues. Meetings are usually held once a week during the fall and spring semesters. You are welcome to join a support group at any time during the academic year. Available support groups include Al-Anon, relationships, self-esteem and grief support.
The Counseling Center provides a range of wellness workshops and services throughout the academic year, including stress relief activities and various screenings such as mental health, alcohol and eating disorder screenings.
They also have a variety of resouces concerning mental health and wellness issues which is free for all students.
Consulting with Hilbert Athletic teams in relation to mental health and sport psychology needs. Providing individual, group, and team services on such topics relevant to each unique team on campus. Examples of sport psychology/mental skills services relate to concentration/focus, imagery/visualization, relaxation skills, team cohesion, mediation, etc.
The Counseling Center works closely with other professionals in the Western New York community. When needed, you may be referred to other resources in the nearby community.
Prevention and early intervention are helpful to assist students in achieving personal and academic goals at Hilbert. We welcome consultations about psychological and educational issues by working directly with faculty and staff concerning a particular student's need or how to work with different student populations. To maintain client confidentiality, no information is released to faculty or staff without a student's written consent. We also consult with students who may be concerned about helping another student, friend or loved one.
To ensure confidentiality, we can never confirm nor deny a student is being seen at the Counseling Center. We can listen and support parents and families and refer them to other resources on or off campus if needed. We are willing to meet with families of students if the student requests it as part of their counseling process. Parents or family members who have concerns about their student at Hilbert should contact the counseling director at 649-7900, ext. 232, or e-mail us.
Dr. Siuta’s approach and theoretical orientation to counseling utilizes Cognitive-Behavior Therapy and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. He has blended these two approaches to help individuals gain insight as to how thoughts influence behaviors and feelings, but to do so by also taking into account individual strengths and resources in a time-sensitive manner to create lasting personal change.
Dr. Siuta has a wife, Becky, two girls, Elizabeth and Gianna and an 11 year old black lab named Brooklyn to help take care of in his free time. He enjoys all sports, is an avid fan of time on the ocean, and travels to new places as much as possible with his family.

Welcome to OLV Human Services’ outpatient clinic on Hilbert campus! Seeking help to cope and rediscover a happy place is not as easy as people think; but it’s a start. Therapy allows you to open your mind and express your feelings. It also allows you to take a closer look at triggers that have played a significant role in holding you back from reaching the goals you would like to accomplish. OLV Human Services’ motto is “We can go the distance”. Solutions always seem so far away.
As your therapist, I will provide you with a safe and nurturing space to explore these underlying issues that have become a challenge to overcome.
I will work with you to hone in on the inner strength you need to find relief from any unwanted feelings and/or negative emotions. I would like to offer you a counseling experience that will help you develop the skills you need to rebuild your self-confidence, develop healthy relationships, and work towards setting achievable goals.
I have several years of experience working with young, middle-aged, and older adults. I utilize an evidence-based approach combining the approaches of cognitive-behavioral and person-centered therapy within my practice. Together we will explore your strengths and look at the entire situation to develop a healthier way of thinking.
