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.


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