Find the approach that fits for you

As a student at FLC, you have the Counseling Center staff available as a support. Your student fees cover some services, while others do incur a cost. You don't have to face life's challenges alone. Contact the Counseling Center to learn more about any of the services we offer.

Individual Counseling

Individual counseling is a collaborative process in which a unique, confidential helping relationship is developed between a counselor and a student in order to explore feelings and behaviors, and to resolve personal problems and issues in accordance to the needs of the student. Some of the issues often addressed in individual counseling include (but are not limited to) stress, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, identity issues (cultural, religious, sexual orientation, etc.), body image, eating disorders, relationships with others, loneliness, physical or emotional abuse (past or present), changes in functioning, and irritability. Students taking eight credits or more are entitled to have an intake and four free counseling sessions. Students who need therapy beyond the free sessions may pay a $35 fee.

Group Counseling

Group therapy consists of approximately 6-10 individuals meeting face-to-face with one or more trained group therapists. Members give feedback to each other based on expressing their own feelings about what someone says, or does. It is a safe environment in which members work to establish a level of trust that allows them to talk openly from personal experience, and to try out new ways of behaving. The FLC Counseling Center provides various therapy and support groups each semester based on the belief that individuals with similar difficulties can share concerns and be supportive of each other; this support often facilitates change. Typical groups offered include a life skills group, men's group, and women's group. There is a $70 charge per semester for any group. Please contact the counseling center to learn more about this semester’s group schedule and/or to schedule a group screening.

Confidential Sexual Assault Services

This service provides students with a confidential resource to discuss and process possible instances of sexual assault/misconduct in a safe environment. As a confidential resource, reporting to the college is not necessary. Students can access a professional staff member who will help them emotionally as well as aid in the creation of an action plan and case management plan for students' next steps based on their needs and wants. This service is completely free and is an extension of the FLC Counseling Center and often partners with many other organizations and departments on campus.
