Services available at Lake Superior College

Personal Counseling– The LSC counselor is able to provide you with short-term support for a variety of concerns (i.e., abuse, anxiety, relationship issues, stress management, and much more). Our counselor can also offer recommendations to community agencies and services for ongoing support.

Academic Counseling – The LSC counselor can help you clarify educational goals, program/career options, balance credit load/work/family, transfer plans, and educational goals.

Career Counseling – There are thousands of careers available to people with a college degree. The challenge is to find career areas that fit your interests, skills, and values. To find this fit, you will need to assess yourself, the world of work, and life planning. The LSC counselor can help you with your career process through inventories, job research, and coaching.

The counselor is also available to serve as a resource for faculty and early alert referrals.

Our hearts are heavy and we stand with our communities of color. If you need a place to process your anger, grief, trauma, sadness….we are here for you. The LSC counselor can provide direct assistance as well as community referrals to best meet your needs. We see you. We care about you. We are here for you.
