The Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic provides a full range of affordable, evidence-based counseling and psychological assessment services. Our clients include Southern Miss students, staff, and faculty, as well as adults in the Hattiesburg community. Brief descriptions of our services are provided below.


Individual Counseling

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 concerns with which we assist people in individual counseling include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Grief and loss
  • Relationship and interpersonal issues
  • Family concerns
  • Major life transitions
  • Anger management
  • Parent training
  • Self-esteem
  • Employment difficulties
  • Academic success (e.g., time management, study skills)

Couples Counseling

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.

Career Counseling

The Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic provides career counseling to help clients examine educational and occupational goals; assess interests, values, and skills; explore the fit between aspects of their personality and various work environments; assist clients in coping with job stress and work-life balance issues; and improve career decision making. 

Psychological Assessment

The Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic provides psychological testing and assessment services at a fraction of their typical cost in the community. Assessment services include:
