Life can get complicated. We are here for you.

About the Counselor Training 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, faculty and the broader community.

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.

The counselors

Students in the advanced stages of their counseling studies are counselors at the CTC. These students work with individuals to help them resolve issues that are barriers to healthy relationships and productive lives. The counselors-in-training work closely with experienced clinical faculty members who are experts in the field of mental health to ensure that the services they provide are of professional quality.


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. Any adult residing in Arizona is eligible for services. At this time, the CTC does not offer services to couples, families or minors.


Clients are assigned to a counselor and scheduled for standing weekly appointments for the semester. Counselors and clients work collaboratively to determine whether additional counseling is needed at the end of the semester. 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
