The Catholic University of America



 Welcome to the Counseling Center at the Catholic University of America.


 Our purpose is to help you make the most of yourself as a developing person—more comfortable and effective in your own life and in your relations with others. This could mean overcoming unwanted feelings and behaviors or enhancing what you are already doing well.


We provide confidential services to full-time and part-time CUA students. Our services include individual therapy, group therapy, psychiatric consultation, walk-in consultations, walk-in emergency services for mental health crises, outreach, and referral services to outside agencies or practitioners.


The Counseling Center is accredited by IACS, the International Association of Counseling Services.


Because of unusually high demand for services and a potentially longer than usual wait time between intake appointments and assignment to weekly therapy appointments, we are not scheduling new intakes for the rest of the Spring 2019 semester. Currently scheduled intake appointments will remain in place. Students who would like to meet with a counselor are encouraged to come in for walk-in sessions up to once per week as needed (no appointment necessary) between now and the end of the semester. Students interested in weekly therapy services over the summer can contact us about intakes, which we anticipate resuming soon after exam week in early May. 


 In case the university is closed (including early closings and delayed openings) due to inclement weather, the Counseling Center will be closed (or delayed) and appointments scheduled during the time we're closed or delayed will be considered to have been cancelled. If this happens, please call to reschedule your appointment for another time.



To schedule an appointment, call 202- 319-5765 or come to the Counseling Center, located in 127 O’Boyle Hall.
