Congratulations on reaching this exciting point in your professional development! On behalf of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Counseling and Testing Center (CTC) it is my pleasure and privilege to welcome you to the training section of our website. We are pleased that you are considering sharing your professional journey with us.

I encourage you to explore the resources available on our website including information about the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and the surrounding area, the culture of the CTC and our training program, as well as the application process.

At the CTC, we recognize and value the unique perspectives, energy, and contributions our trainees bring to our center. As a staff, we are dedicated to providing multiculturally- and trauma-informed training across a variety of theoretical orientations and clinical considerations.

If our training program aligns with your interests and goals, we encourage you to apply. We understand the importance of selecting where you complete your training and welcome any questions that may aid in your decision-making process.
