Who We Are
What We Do
The Counseling Center is committed to supporting Central Missouri's mission by helping students reach their fullest potential. Our free services are designed to help students with concerns affecting their lives and their functioning in college. We are dedicated to providing a safe and respectful atmosphere for students of all genders, ages, races, cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and spiritual beliefs. We provide a range of services aimed at helping students overcome obstacles and grow as a person. Counseling Center is staffed by psychologists who are experienced in responding to a variety of personal and social issues.
A Place to Find Help
The Counseling Center is a safe place for students to begin addressing their concerns. In counseling, an objective person helps the student explore what is bothering them and find solutions to their problems. Through listening and exploration, we can help find individualized solutions to challenges that each student is facing. Counseling can help students develop new skills, understand their feelings and improve their ability to function productively in their life at UCM. Some people benefit from one meeting, while others are seen regularly for a brief period of time. If our time limited services are not appropriate for their needs, we will help access more fitting services in the community. Some of the services we offer are:
-Brief individual, group, & couples counseling
Where We Are
We are located in the East lower side of the Humphreys Building in Room 131.
