Listening creates a holy silence. When you listen generously to people, they can hear the truth in themselves, often for the first time.

The Counseling Service provides:
Services are provided at no additional charge to any currently enrolled student. Students must make their own appointments in person at the office. Any personal concern is appropriate to bring to Counseling.
Our staff consists of licensed mental health professionals with substantial experience working with college students.
Yes, very often it can! A sizeable body of research spanning decades suggests that the average person who participates in psychotherapy is better off than 80 percent of those who do not.1
And our clients at the Luther Counseling Service say it helps. In 2013-2014, 105 of our clients completed a survey after their third counseling session. 93 percent of them agreed or strongly agreed that as a result of their counseling so far, they were building their ability to cope with their problems, issues, or challenges more effectively.
Here are some survey comments from our clients about what was most helpful for them:
