Not sure if you might benefit from talking with a counselor? Take an anonymous, confidential online self-assessment related to depression, anxiety, substance use, gambling, bipolar disorder, eating, psychosis, post-traumatic stress, or general well-being.  At the end of the screening, you will receive feedback about whether you might benefit from talking with a counselor.

Online Screening



At one time or another, many students feel overwhelmed by the stress of academics, work, family, or relationships. Counseling Service staff are available to help students cope with these and other stressors. About 15% of Lewis & Clark students (25% of undergraduates) visit the Counseling Service each year.

Counseling Service staff are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of all L&C students—undergraduate, law and graduate (GSEC). We offer primarily short-term individual, couples, and group therapy, as well as crisis counseling and some psychiatry services. Our staff consists of licensed mental health clinicians. Due to COVID-19, staff are providing telemental health and telepsychiatry services through secure Zoom for Healthcare video conferencing. Students may request to schedule phone appointments with our providers if preferred.

Counseling Service Statement on Racism and Oppression

Events in the last year have raised the national awareness about the brutal treatment and violence directed toward black people and other people of color in the United States. These events have also, once again, highlighted the racial inequities and cultural injustice in America. Counseling Service staff are committed to supporting Black students, Asian and Pacific Islander students, other students of color, and their allies related to the stresses of these times, and to creating a more just, equitable world.

Statement of our commitment to diversity and inclusion

Counseling Service staff are committed to providing a safe environment for all by recognizing the unique identities of our diverse Lewis & Clark community. It is part of our professional ethics and personal values to promote inclusion and to be aware of the impact of privilege, prejudice, marginalization and discrimination in the lives of individuals. We strive to create an atmosphere where we foster dialogue and promote actions that respect and honor all persons. We believe that sharing and supporting varying perspectives facilitates connection, health, and wellness.
