FPU Students

We offer direct, confidential and professional counseling services to undergraduate, degree completion, graduate and seminary students at a subsidized rate for a total of 12 sessions. Students are welcomed and encouraged to continue beyond 12 sessions at a small increase in rate. On-Site is staffed with clinicians able to speak multiple languages in effort to best serve the community. Individual, couples, family, and group therapy is available to all students. We can address a variety of issues and mental health needs.

Contact us at onsite@fresno.edu or 559-453-8050 to schedule an appointment. Our phone line goes directly to a confidential voicemail, in attempt to alleviate any additional stress of speaking with a therapist directly at that time. Taking the first step to pursue therapy is always courageous, but it does not always have to be intimidating. Our confidential voicemail and email are checked multiple times a day and you will receive a response promptly. Your initial 15-minute phone call with a qualified therapist will help determine which clinician will be the best fit for you.

On-Site does not provide crisis or emergency services. In case of mental health emergency, please notify FPU campus security and call 911.

Contracted Services

On-Site Counseling provides social-emotional support services to local school districts, churches and NGOs. With On-Site, you’ll work with the On-Site Counseling Director to design a program that meets the unique needs of your campus or site.

Our On-Site clinicians offer a combination of individual, family, group, and crisis counseling, as well as case management, assessment and referral, psychoeducation, and consultation, as appropriate to your clientele.

Patients receive services directly at your site thereby eliminating difficulties associated with accessing off-site counseling. Many patients feel more comfortable receiving counseling in the familiar setting of school or site and are therefore more likely to participate.

FAQs

Why On-Site Counseling?

Over the past several decades, leaders in community development and pastoral care have begun to realize that the breakdown of relationships in our culture has led to an increasingly hurting church and community. There is a need for professionally trained mental health practitioners who can deliver services with multicultural sensitivity and spiritual integrity.

On-Site counselors work in the context of a seminary program that continually challenges them to integrate care for the whole person within their professional discipline.

Do I have to attend or work at FPU to receive services?

Therapy sessions are available to any individual, couple or family where On-Site Counseling is an appropriate fit.

Do I have to be a Christian to receive services?

On-Site Counseling does not discriminate based on age, gender, race, religious affiliation, sexual orientation or disability. On-Site counselors respect the diversity of our community and welcome clients of all faiths or no faith. Bilingual counseling may also be available.

On-Site counselors provide services within the scope of practice for Marriage and Family Therapists, Clinical Social Workers and Professional Clinical Counselors. Clients with issues outside that scope of practice will be referred to more appropriate services.

How do I know when it’s time to seek therapy?

If you notice that you’re not feeling like yourself for more than a week at a time or you’re experiencing changes in your normal level of functioning. If your relationships are suffering, if you suspect that hurts from your past are lingering or want a safe place to process difficult life situations or stressors.

Is it confidential?

On-Site Counseling, like any other counseling, is completely confidential except in limited situations which are explained at the outset of counseling.

On-Site counselors are mandated reporters of child abuse, elder abuse and dependent adult abuse.
