Lee University Counseling Center
The Counseling Center provides holistic services to students in order to promote psychological, emotional, relational and spiritual health during the transitions faced in college life. While dedicated to short-term treatment and care, we endeavor to support students in lifestyle changes and choices that will help them benefit the most from their college experience.

What to Expect from the Counseling Center
Lee University students (those currently enrolled in courses), are eligible to receive counseling services at no cost. The initial intake with a counselor will be to discuss your concerns, assess needs and identify how to best assist you. Staff and faculty may also receive referrals and consultation regarding student issues at no cost.

The Counseling Center delivers a broad range of mental health services to the university community which may include the following:
  • Individual and couples counseling
  • Pre-marriage Counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Psycho-educational workshops
  • Referral to other specialists
  • Referral to contract psychiatrist
  • Faculty/Staff consultation
  • Outreach                      

The Counseling Center reserves the right to refer any one who we believe will be better served by an outside provider. Counseling Center staff members are committed to helping you get the most out of your college experience by offering individual counseling in which you can explore in a confidential setting concerns including but not limited to:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Traumatic Experiences
  • Sexual Issues
  • Grief and Loss
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Stress
  • Time Management
  • Adjustment Disorders
  • Homesickness
  • Academic Challenges

Our staff members work from a short-term orientation, emphasizing client strengths and healthy coping skills.

Other services include various psycho-educational workshops and mental health awareness seminars administered in group settings in cooperation with a variety of campus entities. These are designed to enhance your knowledge in key areas of mental and emotional health and to teach more effective strategies for coping with problems.

Access to the psychiatrist and psychiatric nurse practitioner is strictly limited to those students actively involved in counseling. Clients interested in a medication consultation must first work with a counselor to determine the most appropriate course of action. Failure to make and keep counseling appointments will result in the loss of psychiatric consultation appointments. Please note that the psychiatrist and psychiatric nurse practitioner are available on a limited basis throughout the fall and spring semesters only. Psychiatric services at the LUCC cannot be accessed during summer, academic breaks, or outside of the providers' scheduled consultation hours. Clients must make arrangements with other providers in order to continue care outside of the fall and spring semesters. Referrals to outside psychiatric providers will be provided upon request."
