The Regis Centers for Counseling and Family Therapy have been set up to provide low to no-cost counseling services for our surrounding communities. Master’s Level therapists-in-training will meet with you once per week for an average of 14 weeks per semester. You will have a consistent counselor over those 14 weeks, and your appointment will be at the same time each week. Many students are Veterans or Spouses and/or have advanced training in our Counseling Military Families Certificate program. We do ask that those receiving therapy agree to be video recorded, as this provides real-time feedback for the therapist to evaluate their skills along with their supervisor. You can look forward to an authentic and growth-oriented relationship with your therapist, as well as to the development of your own base of life-skills derived from the latest research and best practices offered in the field.

Eligibility: Individual, family, couple, and children/adolescent outpatient mental health counseling services provided for any discharge status, any era, and any affiliation (Active/Guard/Reserve/Veteran).
