About Us

Welcome from the Director of University Counseling Services 

Hello and welcome to University Counseling Services (UCS). I hope you find our website useful. As Director of University Counseling Services, I am proud of the services we offer our students, faculty and staff. Our commitment to excellence would not be possible without the outstanding group of individuals working at UCS, who are dedicated to providing you with the best care possible. We have an amazing team comprised of psychologists, marriage and family therapists, social workers, psychiatrists, pre-doctoral interns, graduate assistants, psychiatric residents and administrative staff, each of whom promises you ethical, respectful and professional care. Our staff is diverse in interests, areas of specialty and backgrounds. We provide a variety of free services, including personal counseling, group counseling, outreach, consultation and training. Our peer education programs can be a wonderful experience for students to learn and become better connected to the CSUN community. We exist for the purpose of helping you get the most out of your experience at CSUN and for you to fulfill your personal and professional dreams. If you do decide to utilize our services I hope you will find them beneficial.

Remember, you don't need to be broken to benefit from counseling, you just need to be feeling stuck.

Our Mission

By helping students learn skills to improve their overall mental health, academic performance and quality of life, we hope to enhance the likelihood they will succeed at CSUN.

We accomplish our mission by practicing our knowledge of the science of human behavior as we make bio-psycho-social interventions, teach, mentor and consult with our students, faculty, staff and other contributors to student success. We further accomplish our mission by evaluating the effectiveness of our services as it relates to student success.
