Parking

Client parking is located in the clinics area parking lot located in front of the ISU Clinics entrance of the building which is located on the southwest side of the building facing I-84.  

In preparation for the construction of the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine (ICOM) school, the east parking lot will be blocked off.  Once you enter off Central Dr., turn left following the signs which will lead you to the fire lane area on the East side of the building and then to regular clinic area parking.  At times, this access may be blocked but will be marked clearly with a detour sign directing you to use the West entrance.

Your Counselor will meet you in the clinic reception area where you will receive a temporary parking pass.

About Us

ISU's Meridian Counseling Clinic provides individual, couple, and family counseling at minimal costs to Idaho State University faculty, staff, students and the surrounding community. 

Counseling services are provided by graduate level Master of Counseling students, Doctoral students, and some faculty from the Department of Counseling under the supervision of licensed counselors/faculty members.

For the purposes of training and supervision, counseling interns videotape counseling sessions. To insure clients’ privacy, these videos are securely (encrypted and password protected) stored, kept only briefly for the purposes of supervision, and are erased after supervision.  All client sessions are confidential within the limits of the law.

Individual Counseling

Individual counseling is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a student counselor to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors; work through challenging or influential memories; identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change; better understand themselves and others; set personal goals; and work toward a desired change.

Family Counseling

Family counseling is a process through which families work with a student counselor to help family members communicate more effectively and/or resolve conflicts.  Family counseling can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through difficult life challenges.

Couples Counseling

Couples counseling is a process through which couples work with a student counselor to recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationship.
