Counselor in Training working with a client

ISU's Meridian Counseling Clinic provides individual, couple, and family counseling at minimal costs to community members and Idaho State University faculty, staff, and students.  We also provide day and evening appointments, however, clinic hours vary by semester.


Counseling services at the ISU Meridian Counseling Clinic are provided by graduate level Master of Counseling students under the supervision of faculty and doctoral students in the Department of Counseling.

For the purposes of training and supervision, counseling student interns record their counseling sessions. To ensure clients’ privacy, these recordings are kept on a secure cloud-based system. Recordings are kept only briefly for the purposes of supervision, and are erased after supervision has been completed.  All client sessions are confidential within the limits of the law.

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.

Therapy can help people overcome obstacles to their well-being. It can increase positive feelings, such as compassion and self-esteem. Participants seek to learn skills for handling difficult situations, making healthy decisions, and reaching goals.

Couples counseling is a private session between a student counselor and two persons seeking therapy.  Counseling sessions can help couples involved in a romantic relationship gain insight into their relationship, resolve conflict, and improve relationship satisfaction.  Sessions focus on a specific problems or issues and strive to find solutions to improve the relationship.

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.

The ISU Meridian Counseling Clinic provides Tele-Counseling services via Confidential Zoom Video Conferencing. The Zoom video conferencing platform is HIPAA compliant and encrypted to maintain client confidentiality and privacy. It is easily accessible and downloaded through and requires a  PC/Laptop and internet. It can also be downloaded on IPhone/Smartphone via the Zoom App.

We periodically offer Group Counseling services based on the unique needs of the community.
