Welcome to Lasell's Counseling Center

College can be challenging! And when challenges present themselves, it is often helpful to talk with a professional counselor. The Counseling Center offers free, confidential, short-term counseling to process personal concerns, problems, or difficult feelings as students grow toward independence and satisfaction with life.
