The Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic provides affordable outpatient counseling to the Hattiesburg community. Our clients also include students, staff, and faculty from the University of Southern Mississippi. We offer individual and couples counseling to adults and adolescents (16+). We specialize in therapies that are supported by research (i.e., evidence-based treatments).
We all need help from time-to-time, and meeting with a counselor can be a great way to overcome problems, gain perspective, or learn new skills. Examples of common problems with which we assist people in individual counseling include:
- Anxiety and stress
- Grief and loss
- Interpersonal problems with family, friends, co-workers, etc.
- Academic/occupational skil enhancement (e.g., time management, study skills, assertiveness)
- Managing chronic mental health problems
Most intimate relationships will face challenges where it can be helpful to talk with a counselor. We provide couples counseling to assist couples with managing conflict, communicating more effectively, negotiating roles, coping with transitions, and dealing with infidelity.
