This narrative study presents the lived and told stories of multiracial college students with specific consideration for how they perceive the support they receive from college counselors and why they are sometimes hesitant to go to college counselors. The intention is to assist LPCs working in the college setting to become multiracially orientated. Critical Race Theory is used as a lens to understand racial microaggressions and make meaning of the inequalities that can stand as barriers to multiracial student success and social, emotional, and academic support. Individual interviews with five students affirm the presence of patterns and barriers within the multiracial student experience and a lack of adequate support by college counselors, especially regarding racial identity development. This study has direct implications for college counselors in hopes they can be a stronger and more supportive figure for multiracial students and improve their practice to be more multiculturally oriented.
