Counseling & Therapy Services

The Lewis & Clark Community Counseling Center provides in-office therapy services. You may expect a call within 1-2 business days. We offer limited services offered in Spanish.

Under the guidance of faculty and supervisors, the therapist-trainees establish effective helping relationships and services to facilitate change. Services include brief and long-term approaches. 

All of our services will be sensitive toward and incorporate various aspects of a person’s life such as power, privilege, and oppression and how it impacts the well-being of individuals and the relationships in their lives: physical ability, culture, race/ethnicity, social and political processes, socioeconomic status, exile/migration status, religious and spiritual beliefs, language, education, gender, sexual orientation and age.
