Counseling Center

Welcome to the Lasell University Counseling Center!  The college years are often a time of change and growth, challenge and achievement. When challenges present themselves, it is often helpful to talk to a caring, professional counselor. The Lasell University Counseling Center offers free, confidential short-term counseling to process personal concerns, problems, or feelings as students grow towards greater independence and satisfaction with life.

For those students needing care beyond the scope of our services, for example weekly psychotherapy, psychiatric evaluation, or specialized substance abuse or intensive mental health treatment, we can assist with referrals to services in the local community.


Counseling appointments can be made by any of the following:

• Calling the main line at 617-243-2181
• Emailing
• or by stopping by our offices at 18 Maple Terrace

*Please note: If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, an after-hours emergency, or life-threatening emergency, please contact Lasell University Campus Police at 617-243-2279, dial 911, or visit your nearest emergency room.


Confidentiality is an essential feature of the Counseling Center. Your counselor will discuss confidentiality in detail at your initial appointment. You are welcome to ask any questions you might have at that time.
