Community Counseling Center

About Us

Mission Statement

Commitment to social justice through high quality, direct service to the community and effective training and supervision in mental health counseling, addiction counseling, and family therapy.

Promoting Community Wellness

In January 2012, Lewis & Clark’s Graduate School of Education and Counseling opened the doors to a new Community Counseling Center. The counseling center is dedicated to providing high quality, low cost mental health services to the community. Lewis & Clark faculty supervise, train, and educate graduate-level students, creating effective interventions, outcomes, and knowledge of community needs. 

Our Programs

The Department of Counseling Psychology models collaboration by offering services from three academic programs including:


Our Professional Mental Health Counseling and Addiction Counseling programs are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). Our Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE).
