CSUSB offering sound, affordable, confidential counseling

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. -- With the start of the winter term, the Community Counseling Center at Cal State San Bernardino is now taking appointments.

Counseling 100 to 200 clients each year, the counseling center focuses on helping individuals, from students to the general public, in the Inland Empire.

When it comes to counseling, says Ed Teyber, the director for the center and a professor of psychology at CSUSB, people do the opposite of what you might expect them to do in trying times. “They’re just trying to manage,” he says. “They get kind of overwhelmed and so they just don’t come to counseling.”

The Community Counseling Center offers long-term, low-cost counseling on a sliding fee scale, and it “never turns anyone away for financial hardship,” says Teyber.

The CSUSB Community Counseling Center offers quality confidential counseling services to individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, life changes and relationship problems, including marital issues. Counseling for children or those wishing to work on personal growth is offered as well.

Day and evening appointments are available, and the center also makes referrals. Many clients who desire longer-term counseling can be assisted throughout CSUSB’s academic year, which continues into mid-June.

For more than 30 years the center has counseled or referred more than 10,000 people who have sought its services. Single parents coping with the complex challenges of balancing work and parenting make up its highest percentage of clients.

The Community Counseling Center is staffed by qualified CSUSB graduate students and is supervised by Cal State San Bernardino faculty, who are licensed psychologists. Teyber has overseen the center since 1979.
