CSUSB offers sound, affordable, confidential counseling


With money tight for so many amid today’s shaky economy, the Community Counseling Center at Cal State San Bernardino continues to offer counseling that clients can afford.

Counseling for children or those wishing to work on personal growth is offered as well.

“The Community Counseling Center never turns anyone away for financial hardship,” says Ed Teyber, the center’s director and a professor of psychology at CSUSB.

It offers long-term, low-cost counseling on a sliding fee scale. 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 June.

For more than 30 years the center has counseled with or referred more than 10,000 people who have sought its services.

Single moms and dads, 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. For information, call the CSUSB Community Counseling Center at (909) 537-5569. Also visit the university’s news website at news.csusb.edu.
