Stress in relationships can sometimes lead to emotional distress, academic struggles, and other personal difficulties. In addition, previous individual traumatic experiences can negatively impact the health and happiness couples experience together. Couples counseling can be an excellent opportunity for partners to learn communication and conflict resolution skills as well as ways to enjoy and support each other optimally.

UMLCS offers couples counseling to UMass Lowell students if both members of the couple are enrolled students. We work with couples of all types, including same-sex couples, different-sex couples, married couples, and dating couples. To make an appointment for couples counseling, each member of the couple should contact UMLCS separately to arrange an initial appointment and indicate their interest in couples counseling to the Wellness Assistant scheduling the appointment.
