About Us

ISU's Pocatello 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 ensure 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.
