Counseling Center

Mission Statement

The mission of the CSU Counseling Center is to support and empower our diverse student community through the provision of psychological services. Our services are confidential and include individual, couples and group counseling, crisis intervention, consultation, psycho-education, and referrals. These services are designed to help students cultivate their strengths and overcome obstacles to obtain their personal, academic, and career goals. Likewise, we collaborate closely with our university and community partners to foster the personal, social, and academic well-being of our students and the university community. We are also committed to providing high quality experiential training to graduate students to support their development as aspiring mental health professionals.

Cleveland State University Counseling Center Core Values Are:

  1. Caring and easily accessible services and training.
  2. Respect for our clients and partners as demonstrated by service delivery that is ethical, confidential, and individually tailored.
  3. Promotion of diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice.
  4. Mutual collaboration within the department and with our university and community partners.
  5. Provision of high quality psychological services and training that meet or exceed professional standards.

The Center's clinical staff consists of psychologists, licensed social workers, and counseling and psychology graduate trainees. The clinicians at the Counseling Center adhere to the ethical principles set forth by the American Psychological Association, the National Association of Social Workers, and the American Psychiatric Association. Sessions are private and are provided without charge to CSU students. All discussions and records are kept strictly confidential, except in rare and unusual circumstances, such as when there is an imminent risk of injury to clients of the Center or identified others.
