The LCU Counseling Center provides professional, confidential services for a variety of personal, relational and academic concerns. Students seeking counseling are entitled to a limited number of free individual counseling sessions each semester, but are also invited to participate in other opportunities for personal growth. Be watching for Counseling Center events around campus that may appeal to you.

Our counselors can help with issues related to:

  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Relationships and Breakups
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Grief
  • Recovery from Abuse
  • Academic Concerns
  • Sexual Concerns
  • Family Problems
  • Homesickness
  • Depression
  • Future Goals
  • Alcohol and Drugs

The LCU Counseling Center focuses on helping students function and develop in the stimulating and stressful environment of college. Problems range in intensity from relatively mild distress to severe and chronic psychological disorders.

Both consultation and counseling are confidential. No information about the students we see or the concerns they discuss is entered on an official college record or released to others without the student's prior written consent.

LCU students are eligible to receive counseling services at no cost. The initial intake with a counselor will be to:

  • discuss your concerns
  • assess needs
  • identify how to best assist you

Sessions typically last no more than 50 minutes and are usually scheduled in advance. Emergencies will be seen as soon as possible.
