Concordia’s Counseling Center is here to help you grow emotionally, socially and educationally through increased self-understanding. We offer free individual, couple and group counseling services to all enrolled students. At times, you may experience personal, relational, social or academic difficulties that you are unable to resolve on you own – and you may find it helpful to talk to a professional counselor about your concerns.
Services include, but are not limited to: personal growth, interpersonal relationships, grief and loss, self-esteem, sexuality, anxiety, depression, eating problems/body image, alcohol/drug abuse referral source, rape and crisis counseling, psychological testing, including the MMPI and MBTI, and consultation with faculty and staff regarding student-related issues. The Counseling Center also offers disability services to students with long-term or temporary disabilities.
All services are confidential except for a few legal exceptions that your counselor will discuss in the first session. Our staff has a strong commitment to the ethical standards of the counseling and psychology professions.
