Sound Mind, Sound Body, Sound Future

Our Mission
To provide mental health counseling and related services, enabling our students to meet the personal, emotional and environmental challenges that can interfere with their academic success. The LSC teaches Life Skills which improve student management of college demands and equips students to more readily handle stressors. Life Skills as a set of competencies enable students to form constructive, life-enhancing connections through compassionate understanding of themselves and others while at school and long after.

We Offer
Brief, short-term crisis intervention; disability and psychological assessment, student success workshops and psycho-educational groups and referrals in conjunction with faculty and other agencies on and off campus. Programming is designed to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for students to be effective as people, family members, workers and citizens.

Life Skills Center is Staffed 
By a licensed clinical psychologist and advanced graduate interns working on Doctoral and Masters level Psychology degree programs in the Los Angeles area. Strict adherence to the ethical standards of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the California State Board of Psychology is maintained.
