As a client at the Purdue University Fort Wayne Community Counseling Center, it is important that you attempt to keep all your scheduled appointments. There is a high demand for our free services, and we often have a significant waiting list.

If you need to cancel, please call your counselor or the clinic manager at 260-481-5405. If you do not show up for a scheduled appointment and your counselor can’t get in touch with you, your time slot may be given to someone else.

If you miss an appointment, please contact your counselor or the clinic manager to confirm your next appointment. If you miss three appointments, we must give your appointment time to someone else on the waiting list.

If you need to contact your counselor to cancel an appointment or if you have an emergency, call 260-481-5405. To leave a message for your counselor, follow the prompts:

  • Press 1 to schedule an appointment or leave a message for the clinic manager.
  • Press 2 if your appointment is on a Monday.
  • Press 3 if your appointment is on a Tuesday afternoon.
  • Press 4 if your appointment is on a Tuesday evening.

The Purdue Fort Wayne Counseling Center is located northeast of Purdue Fort Wayne’s main campus, in the Dolnick Learning Center at 100 Baker Drive North, Fort Wayne, Indiana, 46835.

Free parking is available. You may park in the areas marked “College Parking.” Handicapped parking is also available.

The Purdue Fort Wayne Counseling Center is the primary training center for graduate students in training. Most sessions are observed by a faculty supervisor and another student. Each evening, the professional team discusses how to provide the best services possible. In the last decade, our faculty and counseling students earned two national and nine statewide awards for excellence. The program has both state and national accreditation.

We respect the rights of clients and adhere to a strict ethical code. A central tenet of our ethical code is maintaining client confidentiality as mandated by law. Indiana law requires all counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers to report child abuse. We must also tell authorities if clients become a danger to themselves or others.

We extend services to everyone, regardless of race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin or ancestry, genetic information, disability, status as a veteran, marital status, parental status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
