The Counseling Center addresses students' concerns regarding a wide variety of issues.
When faced with adversities, individuals are often able to receive the support necessary
to overcome their difficulties through communication with their families or friends.
However, professional assistance may be necessary for adequate resolution to occur.
Counseling services are offered to all enrolled ULM undergraduate, graduate and professional students. Faculty and Staff counseling services are also available. All counseling services are FREE OF CHARGE.
Confidentiality is an essential component in the counseling process. Students are encouraged to feel comfortable in sharing their issues of concern in an environment that is safe and non-threatening.
Substance Abuse Recovery Program
A Counseling Center substance abuse specialist identifies problems relating to the use of alcohol and other drugs and works with students in recovery. Individualized assessment, counseling, referrals, and groups are available.
Students with academic concerns may seek individual counseling in order to address specific situations. Common issues include: test anxiety, time management, note-taking skills, and reading comprehension.
Group counseling can often be a more curative force than individual therapy. Participants receive mutual identification with and acceptance from others going through similar problems. Each semester, the Counseling Center offers students an opportunity to participate in a group experience which addresses a specific topic.
