No-Fee Personal Therapy
Our individual services are designed for students who may benefit from short-term or long-term therapy.  Some concerns may be best addressed utilizing a brief treatment model that results in short term treatment, while other issues are better addressed with a long term approach. Regardless, these confidential counseling services are available to Alliant International University San Diego campus students at no cost.

Professional/Personal Growth Requirement
The Counseling and Psychological Services Center on the San Diego Campus has established a fee structure for students seeking professional/personal growth hours.

Students in need of personal counseling will continue to receive services at no charge, but the sessions will not count for their program’s professional growth requirement.
Couples Counseling
Couples counseling is also available at no cost for students on the San Diego campus of Alliant International University. It is not required that the student’s partner be enrolled at Alliant as well. Couples counseling is designed to help couples with relationship problems. Couples counseling can be used to gain a better understanding of each other, to learn to relate to each other in new and improved ways, to improve communication, and to learn problem solving skills.  Couples counseling can give you the opportunity to examine and work on improving your relationship with your partner.  We will work with the couple on establishing and achieving therapeutic goals.
Group Counseling
Each semester on the San Diego campus, the Counseling Center at Alliant International University offers a variety of group therapy experiences. A significant advantage of group therapy is the opportunity to benefit from the experience of counselors facilitating the groups while interacting with students who are going through issues that may be similar to yours. Through these groups, students may gain specific skills and strategies to meet personal goals, explore areas that present personal challenges, and gain support and encouragement from other students.  You may request, or your individual counselor may suggest, that you join a counseling group.  Groups are typically comprised of six to eight students with a range of concerns and personal growth goals, and are led by one or two counselors on staff.
