Welcome to the University Counseling Center website!
The University Counseling Center (UCC) is designed to serve the counseling and mental health-related needs of UCCS students.
The mission of the University Counseling Center is threefold: (1) to assist UCCS students with their academic success when personal/psychological matters are complicating and interfering with the students' efforts; (2) to serve as a training site for graduate students in Clinical Psychology and Counseling fields; and (3) in accordance with UCCS tradition, create, implement, and develop services that are open to various organizations in the community.
The services we provide help UCCS students achieve their educational goals, define their career goals, learn more about problem-solving processes, enhance their capacity for satisfying interpersonal relationships, and maximize their capacity for continued emotional growth. Our services include individual therapy, couples therapy, family therapy, crisis/emergency interventions, and consultation sessions for concerned friends/roommates/instructors. We also offer workshops and presentations open to the UCCS community. On our website, you will find more information about the services we offer, our staff, outside resources to help you with a variety of different issues, and ways to contact us.
