New counseling center has low-cost services

Pfeiffer University has opened a new community-based counseling center in Charlotte to offer low-cost therapy services at an office on Park Road.

The Pfeiffer Institute provides confidential counseling for individuals, couples and families. Its purpose is to help clients meet personal and professional goals through therapy for a range of emotional, behavioral, and personal issues.

The center is also a training clinic for students in the school's graduate program in marriage and family therapy. It serves as a field placement source for graduate counseling interns from Pfeiffer and other schools. The supervised experience prepares interns to become clinicians.

The Pfeiffer Institute is at 4805 Park Road, Suite 250. Fees are $25 per session, or on a sliding scale for those in need. Details: 704-945-7324; www
