CU-Well Counseling Center:
Information About Services Provided
The CU-Well Counseling Center is a ministry of Campbellsville University, Louisville Education Center. The CU-Well is located at 4420 Dixie Highway in Louisville, KY. The CU-Well is an out-patient counseling center staffed by student interns from the Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy (MMFT) program. The MMFT program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE), the national accrediting body for Marriage and Family Therapy, thereby ensuring our program meets the highest standards of educational and practicum requirements.
The MMFT program is a sixty-hour, nationally accredited program that educates and trains students to become licensed therapists. Prior to providing counseling services, students complete eighteen hours of education, twelve months of case consultation and experience individual counseling prior to providing counseling in the Well. When an intern starts seeing clients in the CU-Well, they are paired with a more experienced student intern to assist in meeting the needs of the client(s). Interns have the support of more experienced interns as well as the support of their clinical supervisor. Interns receive supervision each week from experienced, licensed marriage and family therapists who have completed, or are currently working toward, the highest level of supervisor training available to supervisors. Each supervisor is an American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) approved supervisor or supervisor candidate. Counseling services are provided onsite, in-person at our Dixie Highway campus (per laws regarding COVID) and available via telehealth.
Licensed marriage and family therapists are Qualified Mental Health Professionals (QMHP) in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, providing assessment, diagnosis and treatment for those seeking mental health counseling. The MMFT program trains students to competently provide counseling to individuals, couples and families. Students in the MMFT program at Campbellsville University provide counseling services to anyone seeking counseling. There is no discrimination of persons seeking counseling.
Individual counseling services, when a person meets alone with the counselor, are provided on a sliding-scale, according to one’s income. The minimum fee is $7.00 per session. All clients are encouraged to consider including family members in their counseling to provide as much support and relationship strengthening as possible, however, it is not a requirement to receive counseling. We work with individuals to ensure they are able to receive counseling services regardless of their ability to pay.
Relational counseling services, when a couple or family members meet with a counselor, are provided at no cost. Should there be times that the therapist requests a meeting with only one member of the couple/family, there will be no charge since the therapist asks for the exception for that session.
Group counseling services, when people meet in a group to address specific or general mental health or relationship topics, are provided at no cost. Group counseling is not always available through the CU-Well.
The CU-Well Counseling Center seeks to schedule services for new clients within seven business days. However, there may be occasions that client services are delayed due to availability of our interns.
It is important to communicate with the intake specialist if the need for counseling is urgent.
The CU-Well Counseling Center does not provide Crisis Counseling. If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, i.e., you are experiencing thoughts of suicide, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-825 or Chat line at 741741.
