As a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Community Counseling and Research Center is closed. The CCRC operates on UCF’s semester class schedule and as a result of the new class structure, the CCRC will not be seeing clients in the clinic until face to face classes resume. If have any questions, would like to see a counselor, or have any concerns, please email us at

The Community Counseling and Research Center (CCRC), housed in the College of Community Innovation and Education, is a state of the art clinical training facility that offers free individual, couple and family counseling sessions, Advanced graduate students from the mental health counseling, marriage and family therapy, and school counseling programs serve as the counselors in the CCRC. These counselors are under the direct supervision of a Counselor Education faculty member and/or a doctoral student learning clinical supervision skills: it is their job to provide your counselor with consultation and suggestions in order to maximize the benefits of counseling.

The CCRC operates weekdays and evenings throughout the year, with short breaks between semesters. 50-minute counseling sessions, which are monitored and recorded by our digital system, are offered to adults, adolescents, and children in 10 counseling rooms (which includes spaces for individuals, families, and even play therapy). The CCRC serves more than 1,200 clients each year.

The CCRC adheres to the ethical standards of the American Counseling Association and the laws and rules of the State of Florida. Clients are accepted on a first come, first served basis and spots fill up quickly (but space is usually available throughout the year). When necessary for our clients’ benefits, referrals are made to our community partners.
