Something feeling off?
Therapy could help.
Counseling services for university students, children, teens, families, individuals, and couples.
Our professional counselors help individuals, couples and families grow towards more healthy and functional lives.
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, it might be time to seek therapy.
If your relationships are suffering, if you suspect that hurts from your past are lingering, or if you want a safe place to process difficult situations or stressors, counseling could help.
OSCC counselors respect the diversity of our community and welcome clients of all faiths or no faith. OSCC does not discriminate based on age, gender, race, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, or disability.

- Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.
You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
- Contracted Services
OSCC provides social-emotional support services to local school districts, churches and NGOs. With OSCC, you’ll work with the On-Site Counseling Director to design a program that meets the unique needs of your campus or site.
Our OSCC clinicians offer a combination of individual, family, group, and crisis counseling, as well as case management, assessment and referral services, psychoeducation, and consultation, as appropriate to your clientele.
Clients receive services directly at your site thereby eliminating difficulties associated with accessing off-site counseling. Many clients feel more comfortable receiving counseling in the familiar setting of school or site and are therefore more likely to participate.

Frequently Asked Questions
- Why OSCC?
OSCC is a training agency for therapists.

For clients, this means the clinician they are working with is invested in the treatment process and is motivated to provide the best experience possible.
OSCC therapists seek to deliver services with multicultural sensitivity and spiritual integrity. OSCC therapists who do/did their graduate studies in Marriage and Family Therapy at FPU Biblical Seminary have specific training in integrating Christian faith and counseling. If this integration is of particular interest to you, please mention it to the referral line time member at the time of the initial phone call. That way we can place you with a therapist who has specialized training.
