About UMSL Counseling and Social Advocacy Center

The Counseling and Social Advocacy Center @ UMSL provides individual and group counseling, family and couples counseling, child and adolescent counseling, career counseling, and play therapy.

We are part of the Department of Counseling and Family Therapy at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. We train school and clinical mental health counseling practicum students enrolled in the school’s master’s and doctoral programs. Faculty members who hold licenses in counseling, psychology and marriage and family therapy supervise our students.

Counselor experience ranges from doctoral students with an average of five years to advanced master’s level counselors.

All sessions are recorded for training purposes so that counselors-in-training may receive feedback. The highest privacy standards are followed through HIPPA.
