Counseling Services

Counseling Services provides students with a safe place to express their thoughts and feelings, explore alternative points of view, learn coping strategies, and manage the stresses of college life. The Student Health Center fee covers individual and group session therapy. Currently-enrolled Columbia College Chicago students may be assigned to group counseling or receive, as appropriate, up to 12 individual counseling sessions per academic year. Students may also participate in daily self-improvement groups provided by Counseling Services staff or a Wellness Series Workshop scheduled throughout the academic year. Additionally, when suitable, students may receive linkage and/or referral to off-campus treatment providers. All therapeutic services are completely confidential. Students should contact (312) 369-8700 to schedule an appointment with a clinician. Students can complete anonymous online screenings for anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, substance abuse, and trauma through the website:
