About Us

The Counseling Center offers free counseling services to regularly enrolled students at California State University, Chico. There are a wide variety of reasons students come to counseling: 

  • resolving personal problems or conflicts 
  • seeking clarification and support in making important life decisions 
  • experiencing an emotional crisis due to a traumatic incident or a series of incidents 
  • help in developing personal survival skills necessary to achieve personal goals. 

Our staff includes professionally trained and skilled counselors with whom you can discuss your concerns, questions, and feelings in a comfortable and trusting relationship. You may learn to make better decisions, change certain behaviors, improve personal skills, develop increased confidence in your abilities, and acquire a keener awareness and appreciation of your needs and those of other people. With the help of a counselor's support and involvement, changes such as these may be less difficult than you think.
