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 in- dividual and group sessions. Currently-enrolled Columbia College Chicago students may be assigned to group counseling or receive 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 appropriate, students may receive linkage and/or referral to off-campus treat- ment providers. All therapeutic services are completely confidential. Students should contact (312) 369-8700 to schedule an appointment with a clinician.
