As counselors, we are dedicated to helping individuals, couples, and families deal more effectively with their concerns. We respect the rights of clients and adhere to a strict ethical code. A central tenet of our ethical code is maintaining client confidentiality as mandated by law.
Indiana law requires all counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers to report child abuse. We must also tell authorities if clients become a danger to themselves or others.
We extend services to everyone, regardless of race, sex, religion, gender preference, or national origin. We believe that individual growth and development are best nurtured in the context of environmental and family relationships.

The IPFW Counseling Center offers help for individuals (adults and children), couples, and families experiencing personal problems, adjustment reactions, or career-counseling concerns. Typical client issues include:
Sessions are free of charge. The IPFW Counseling Center is the primary training center for graduate students-in-training. Most sessions are observed by a faculty supervisor and another student. Each evening, the professional team discusses how to provide the best services possible. In the last decade, IPFW faculty and counseling students earned two national and nine statewide awards for excellence. The program has both state and national accreditation.
Parents/guardians must accompany children on their first visit. A determination will be made during the first session regarding who will attend counseling to best serve the child’s needs.
To arrange an appointment or make a referral to the IPFW Counseling Center, call 260-481-5405. Sessions are available by scheduled appointment, Monday 1:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday 5:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. All inquiries are treated confidentially.
