Lincoln College Counseling Services

Counseling services are available to all Lincoln College students. We offer assistance to students who are experiencing normal developmental challenges, as well as students who are challenged by the process of transition from high school to Lincoln College. Our professionally trained counselors want to talk with you about concerns with homesickness, difficulty adjusting to new situations, relationship challenges, depression and more. The counseling center also provides preventive programs designed to increase awareness and skills for managing your daily life and school effectively and successfully.

We provide a confidential counseling environment in a safe and private setting at no additional cost for students to discuss issues such as:

  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship concerns
  • Sexual abuse and assault
  • Substance abuse
  • Women’s issues
  • Grief and loss
  • Conflict resolution
  • Time management
  • Other personal concerns
