Welcome to the Student Counseling Center!

Our goal is to serve LSU Health Shreveport students and engage our entire academic community as we work 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. The Student Counseling Center 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.

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
  • manage relationship difficulties
  • 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. 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.




We are dedicated to helping students adjust to the demands of a medical professional degree education with the following services:

  • Information/Referral
  • Individual Counseling/Psychotherapy
  • Medication Management
  • Screening/Assessment/Evaluation

There is no out-of-pocket expense for our services to any student who has paid tuition and fees.



We are available to assist you at the clinic during the following days/times: Monday - Friday from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Flexible Appointment Availability:
Additionally, we offer flexible appointment scheduling options. If you are in need of individual counseling outside of normal operating hours, please contact us. We are willing to work with students to meet their needs for scheduling appointments around work and class schedules.
