At one time or another, students may feel overwhelmed by the responsibilities of college, work, family, or relationships. Counseling Service staff are available to help students cope with these and other stressors. About 15 percent of Lewis & Clark students visit the Counseling Service each year. 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 and doctoral practicum clinicians who are supervised by our licensed staff.
Statement of our commitment to diversity and inclusion: We in the counseling service 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.
