Life Skill Center

Our Mission

To provide mental health counseling and related services, enabling our students to meet the personal, emotional, and environmental challenges that can interfere with their academic success. The LSC teaches Life Skills that improve student management of college demands and equips students to more readily handle stressors. Life Skills as a set of competencies enable students to form constructive, life-enhancing connections through a compassionate understanding of themselves and others while at school and long after.

Programming is designed to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for students to be effective as people, family members, workers, and citizens.

Life Skills Center is Staffed

By a licensed clinical psychologist and advanced graduate interns working on Doctoral and Masters level Psychology degree programs in the Los Angeles area.
