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.

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