Interprofessional Center

for Counseling & Legal Services

Counseling

Counseling services are provided to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families by masters-level psychology students who are either in the second or third year of their doctoral program. Graduate social work interns, who are completing their clinical Master’s program, also provide individual counseling services. Multicultural sensitivity, including working with GLBT clients, is stressed both in the graduate programs as well as training at the IPC.

Referral sources can contact Counseling Services by calling the Interprofessional Center at 651-962-4820 or faxing a referral form to 651-962-4815. We anticipate taking new referrals in Fall 2007.

Social Work Services works in conjunction with Legal Services and Counseling Services to provide comprehensive case management to clients enrolled in these programs. Case managers have extensive knowledge on a variety of issues affecting our clients, such as housing, transportation, food support, advocacy, and linkages to ESL, job training and other education programs. In addition, the case manager provides much needed emotional support to clients embroiled in difficult legal issues. Home visitations are available to persons in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, and to the home bound.
