Relationship counseling is designed to help you navigate your relationship problems. This can help you gain insight and learn more effective ways to communicate.

A system is a group of two or more people with an ongoing relationship. Any type of relationship system can seek counseling at the center. Here are some examples:

  • Married
  • Partnered
  • Single
  • Consensual nonmonogamous/polyamorous
  • LGBTQ+
  • Roommates or housemates
  • Friendships

To receive relationship counseling, one member of the relationship must be a registered Purdue Fort Wayne student.

Walk-in services enable you to meet with center staff to address a specific concern or crisis, or to determine which services might best address your need. Walk-in services are available during hours of operation and are on a first-come-first-served basis. 

A variety of counseling, support, and educational groups are available each semester. Group members often benefit from mutual support and learning that occur from group interactions. If you have an idea for a group counseling topic or would like us to start a specific group, please reach out and let us know.

The relaxation and low-sensory space is a lounge area that provides space for students (as well as faculty and staff) to decompress, relax, and unplug. The room provides dim lights, white noise, comfortable chairs, and relaxation items. The goal of the relaxation room is to provide a safe environment and the tools necessary to manage stress. We also have a quiet area for studying. The relaxation and low-sensory space is available for use by all PFW and IUFW students. Students do not have to be a current client of the center to use the space.

The Center for Student Counseling is committed to supporting university programs designed to create a culture of well-being, personal growth, and mental wellness for students. To help achieve this goal, the center is available to provide various outreach and consultation services, including group presentations, trainings, workshops, and panels to PFW and IUFW faculty, staff, students, or organizations. If you are interested, please contact us at [email protected] or 260-481-6200 so that we can meet your outreach needs.
