Mission & Objectives

The GW Community Counseling Services Center has two primary missions: to provide quality counseling services to clients and to promote excellence in the training of master’s and doctoral students through state-of-the-art clinical supervision.

The CCSC serves as a resource to the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area by providing low-cost counseling and referral services, clinical screenings, and outreach programming. It empower clients through community outreach and client advocacy while providing opportunities for master’s students to implement and develop expertise in counseling competencies—including interviewing skills, clinical and career assessment, treatment planning, and mastery of theories and practice—under the close supervision of faculty and clinical supervisors.
