Services Offered

University Counseling Services (UCS) offer affordable counseling to currently enrolled DePaul students.  Undergraduate and graduate students are welcome.  Services offered include individual, group and couples counseling.  UCS strives to help students successfully make important transitions, such as: starting college; living away from home for the first time; transferring from another school to DePaul; returning to college after a time away from school; adjusting after a major life event or trauma (e.g., international travel or new cultural experience, parental divorce, illness or death; an assault or accident), and preparing to move from college to the work force. UCS also provides consultation, assessment and referral, and conducts a wide variety of workshops for the DePaul community.

Clients include a diverse population of students of varying ages and ethnicities, who present with a wide variety of situations and concerns, including:

    • test anxiety

    • self-esteem

    • eating concerns

    • body image

What Happens in Counseling?  

After the initial session, your counselor will help you define what you would like to gain from the counseling experience.  After the assessment, your counselor will work with you to develop a plan to help you meet your particular goals.
