Center City Counseling Clinic 2016

Clinic to reopen for in-person counseling sessions

Center City Counseling Clinic will resume in-clinic counseling sessions at the start of the Fall Semester, August 17, 2020.  The Clinic asks that all clients wear a mask into the building and Clinic Office.  Once checked in, clients can wait in the lobby area of the building (rather than the waiting room) so that social distancing is possible.  A number of chairs are located throughout the area for your convenience. 

A limited number of Telehealth sessions are also available for persons who cannot access counseling sessions in-person.  These are available through Zoom or by phone.

If you would like to schedule a counseling session, please call the Clinic at 417-836-3215.  If no one answers, please leave a message and someone will return your call.

The following are some additional resources:

Domestic Violence:




Suicide Prevention:   

Suicide Prevention Lifeline:  1-800-273-8255

LGBTQIA++ Resources, Hotline, Chatline:

Crisis Text Line:  (Text line is 741-741)

The Clinic provides counseling services for adults, teens, young children (down to the age of two), and couples.  Our fees are income-based and on a sliding scale.  We will also waive the fee altogether if this presents a financial difficulty to the client.

We work with persons living throughout southwest Missouri, as well as students, staff and faculty members from the colleges and Universities in the area.

Our Clinic is very supportive of the diverse people living within our larger community and accepts persons of all ethnicities, nationalities, spiritual beliefs and gender identifications. 

As a public affairs service of the counseling programs of the Counseling, Leadership and Special Education Department; the clinic's mission is to serve the community. The clinic was established over 20 years ago with the vision of growing with the community and guaranteeing access to mental health services.

Missouri Mental Health Foundation Art Exhibit Fall 2017

A collection of sketches, paintings and photographs is on display in the rotunda of the Park Central Office Building as part of the Missouri Mental Health Foundation Director’s Art Exhibit.

Each year, a new art display travels the state as part of MMHF’s work toward de-stigmatizing mental illness, developmental disabilities and addiction disorders.  Each piece is submitted by an individual struggling with some aspect of this spectrum.  This is the fourth year that Center City Counseling Clinic has co-sponsored this exhibit.
