If you are reading this, you are someone who is committed to improving the lives of others.  One way you can do that is by
becoming a counselor or therapist who is knowledgeable about human behavior and has developed effective therapeutic skills. A
graduate program in counseling or clinical psychology may be the best way to make that happen.
The La Salle University Master’s program in Clinical-Counseling Psychology began over twenty years ago.  Its focus is practical: to
give you the knowledge and skills necessary to be an effective professional counselor or therapist.  While many of our students
have an undergraduate degree in psychology, others come to us with business, educational, nursing, or liberal arts backgrounds.
Some of our students have limited background in mental health, while others have extensive experience in mental health work.
We enjoy the diversity of backgrounds and range of ages of the people in our program.
