Welcome to the University Counseling Center! Our goal is to serve LSU Health Shreveport students and engage our entire academic community, working to build a culture of support and connection with student well-being. We accomplish mental health and personal development by collaborating directly with students to overcome challenges and difficulties that may interfere with academic, emotional, and personal success. University Counseling Services helps remove barriers to learning by providing accessible psychological and psychiatric assessment, short-term psychotherapy, medication management, consultation and crisis intervention, community referrals, workshops and psychoeducational programming to currently enrolled students and their families.

Our clinical professionals provide a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment for students to discuss concerns. The staff provides and individualized approach to care, and strives to provide students with ample opportunities to:

  • develop greater insight and self-understanding
  • identify and solve problems
  • reduce emotional distress
  • improve cognitive, emotional, academic, and social functioning
  • explore and understand cultural and other identities

Our work also involves information, trainings, and tools to help students, staff, faculty, and family members. Together, we can achieve a climate of emotional well-being where each student can engage thoughtfully as an active community member and support their fellow students.
