Counseling Center

The St. Ambrose University Counseling Center provides individual (personal) and group counseling to students, faculty and staff. The center provides a confidential, supportive and collaborative environment for open discussion of personal issues. We work towards making positive changes to ones thoughts, feelings, relationships, behavior/life situation.


To make an appointment, call 563/333-6423.
If you prefer to receive professional counseling off campus, we will be happy to refer you to or identify appropriate agencies, centers or private practitioners.

The Counseling Center is staffed with licensed, professional counselors who can help as you attempt to sort out the issues facing you. The emphasis in counseling is not to provide answers or to make decisions for you. Rather, it is a cooperative effort that explores new insights or ways of thinking, alternatives and possible new directions. This effort is concluded in an atmosphere of mutual respect, equality and caring.

Services include:

  • Free, confidential counseling for students

Faculty or staff members may be one of the first to become aware of personal difficulties affecting a student. Consider referring a student to the Counseling Center if you notice any of these warning signs.
