About Us

Cardinal Stritch Counseling Services is a place you can find someone to talk with when you're feeling, lonely, depressed, confused, upset over a relationship, or just plain stressed.


The primary goal of the Counseling Services staff is to help students develop the personal awareness and skills necessary to explore new alternatives, define goals, overcome problems, make healthy life choices, and grow and develop in ways that will allow them to maximize their educational experience at Stritch.

It is our hope that our assistance will help not only today, but that the discussion and discovery we share in counseling  will create lifelong changes and serve to help students fulfill their hopes, dreams, and potential.

Counseling Services staff is available to present on a wide variety of wellness topics to classes, organizations, and residence halls.

Contact the Counseling Services office to schedule appointments by calling (414) 410-4097, or call or email directly the staff member you wish to contact.
