"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens."

- Carl Jung

A full-time licensed professional counselor provides services in a safe, supportive, and confidential environment at no cost to the student. Numerous books, pamphlets, and local community resources are available through referral by the counselor.  Counseling is offered free of charge to Lyon students. The counseling center is located on the first floor of Edwards Commons. 

Lyon College Counseling Center seeks to support the College’s mission by working with students in counseling to help them discover and strengthen the sense of who they are and what impedes them in their personal and academic lives.
