Up one level:
Student Psychological Services (SPS) provides psychological and emotional assistance to currently enrolled LMU students; there is no charge for services. A student's contact with SPS is protected by laws of confidentiality with a few rare legal exceptions, and therapy records are separate from academic records. SPS is a safe, welcoming environment for all students regardless of their gender, ethnicity, race, culture, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, national origin, age, physical or mental abilities, and/or socioeconomic status. SPS strives to cultivate students' ability to develop to their full personal, social, and academic potential.
SPS staff are highly trained, user-friendly, and committed to student well-being. Students seek SPS services for a variety of mild to more significant concerns, including adjustment to college, conflict resolution, anxiety, depression, academic and/or life stress, disordered eating, trauma, substance abuse, relationship concerns, and other life issues. SPS offers individual, couple, and group counseling. Consultation is available to students, parents, and staff, as are referrals for extended treatment. Outreach programs throughout the year include Wellness Wednesday and online screenings. A relaxation room with biofeedback is available to all students during regular office hours.
SPS is located on the north side of the Burns Recreation Center, 2nd floor. Office hours are 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. with extended hours on Wednesday until 7:00 p.m. during the academic year. Appointments may be scheduled by coming to the office or calling 310.338.2868. Appointments must be cancelled at 24 hours prior to your appointment, otherwise a fee of $25.00 will be charged for a missed appointment.
A therapist is available during the day in case of personal emergency or crisis. After hours, please call Public Safety at 310.338.2893. For more information, visit the web page at http://www.lmu.edu/counseling.
