About the Center
Established in 1956 as the community counseling clinic for the Counseling and Counseling Psychology graduate degree programs, the Counselor Training Center (CTC) provides confidential counseling services for ASU students, staff, and faculty as well as the larger community. Through the center, clients receive counseling services to enhance their well-being in all areas of life.
ASU’s Counseling and Counseling Psychology graduate programs are ranked among the nation’s best. Internationally renowned scholars and professors guide a dynamic curriculum that combines innovative research with best practices and hands-on experiences. The faculty of the CTC is committed to training the next generation of highly skilled professional counselors and psychologists.
Providing services under the close supervision of experienced clinical faculty members who are experts in the field of mental health, the counselors-in-training work with individuals, couples, and families to help them resolve issues that are barriers to healthy relationships and productive lives.
At the CTC we strive to provide therapeutic services that respect and affirm the race, ethnicity, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, national origin, sex, religious affiliation, size, physical or mental disability, and socioeconomic status of all persons. We fully embrace the provision of multiculturally sensitive services that honor the dignity of all individuals. All ASU and Phoenix metro community members are eligible for services.
Counseling services are tailored to the concerns presented by the client, which might include but are not limited to:
- Personal problems
- Family problems
- Career counseling
- Life transitions
Clients are assigned to a counselor and scheduled for standing weekly appointments for the duration of the semester. Counselors and clients work collaboratively to determine whether additional counseling is needed at the end of the semester.
