Mission & History
The Community Counseling Services of California Lutheran University has a threefold mission: to provide high quality, affordable therapy to members of our community, to provide excellent training opportunities for our Master and Doctoral level students, and to be an active center of research within our field.
Community Counseling Services was started by a core group of faculty and students on the Thousand Oaks campus in 1986. The clinic moved to its present location in 2006. The Oxnard clinic opened in April 2010. This location was chosen after much consideration in order to help address mental health needs in an area that has typically been underserved.
Both clinics provide bilingual counseling services to adults, children, adolescents, couples, and families in our community. Our number one source of referrals are satisfied clients who recommend our services to others they know who are seeking counseling. Their positive experiences at the clinic contribute to our success. This is a legacy that we are grateful for and take pride in.
