Personal Counseling

At times, everyone feels stressed-out, depressed, angry, anxious or confused. Sometimes these problems gradually go away on their own or they get better with the support of our friends and family. However, there are times when these problems do not go away or they become too overwhelming. These are the times when one should seek out professional help.

The St. Catherine University Counseling Center is a confidential service staffed by professional psychologists made available to students free of charge. Services include short-term counseling and consultation as well as referral to community resources.

The St. Paul Counseling Center also provides psychiatric services free of charge to currently enrolled students during the school year from September to December and from February to May. Psychiatric services are provided by a consultant who practices in the Twin Cities area.
