Student Counseling at The Wellness Center

Students contact Student Counseling Services for a variety of reasons, but the overriding reason they do so is find help in order to feel better about themselves.

Welcome to Student Counseling at The Wellness Center at Lindenwood University. We are dedicated to helping students achieve the kinds of academic success, personal growth, and balance that lead to rich, full, and healthy lives. College can be very challenging - filled with stress, anxiety, and deadlines. Along with life stressors, like working on your relationships with parents, siblings, romantic partners, and friends, coping with setbacks, maintaining physical health, dealing with losses, and managing finances, it is easy to become overwhelmed. With this additional stress, old hurts and suffering can come back to bother you, and new problems can arise - just when you don't need more to worry about.

Student Counseling at The Wellness Center provides a variety of free confidential services to help you, including individual counseling, group counseling, career testing, and consultation. Services are designed to provide help for common problems reported by college students. While some students may resolve these issues themselves, counseling may be helpful if you have ongoing concerns about any of the following:


  • Poor study skills/time management
  • Difficulty adjusting to college
  • Problems with test-taking
  • Listening/communication
  • Test anxiety


  • Feeling sad/depressed most of the time
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Loneliness/isolation
  • Angry/grouchy/irritable

Relationship Problems

  • Family problems
  • Uncomfortable in social situations
  • Conflict with others
  • Coping with a relationship breakup

Personal Habits and Problems

  • Abusing alcohol or drugs
  • Sexual abuse or assault
  • Eating disorders
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Coping with stress or anxiety

Identity and Self-Esteem

  • Sexuality issues
  • Values clarification
  • Negative thinking or low self-esteem
  • Need assertiveness

If you feel that any of these are of significant concern to you, you may find it helpful to speak with a counselor. Counseling is not just for those who suffer from serious psychological problems. All of us have times in our lives when we could benefit from talking with a caring, professional listener. This is where our counselors can be of assistance to you. During your first appointment, you can expect to meet with a counselor who will talk with you about your needs and the ways in which Student Counseling at The Wellness Center might be able to help.
