Bradley University Counseling is a division of Health Services. We believe in the importance of understanding that the mind and body are not mutually exclusive and that health is obtained from addressing the needs of both.

User Policy

Counseling exists to provide mental health care for Bradley Students. All continuing students are eligible to use the health services on a year-round basis if they are enrolled at the Institution and pay the health fee. Counseling Hours during the summer are 9am-noon Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 1-4pm Tuesday and Thursday.


Our counseling staff is composed of four masters level therapists with extensive clinical experience and a psychiatrist from the community that comes to campus twice per week.

Our staff includes:

  • D'Arcy Conley MA, LCPC
  • Melissa Dessert, MS, LCPC, CADC
  • Lisa Fix-Griffin, MS, LCPC
  • Renee Patton, PhD, LCPC
  • Deborah Montgomery-Coon, MA, LCPC Director of Counseling


Summer Hours

Due to the number of students on campus or in the area throughout the summer, Health Services and Counseling consolidates during the summer.  All counseling appointments will be held in Health Services, on the main floor of Markin Recreation Center.  Hours during the summer are 9am-noon Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and 1-4pm Tuesday and Thursday. 

Student IDs

Please remember to bring your student ID with you for your counseling appointment. It is a requirement to obtain access to the recreational facilities including the lower level. If you do not have your ID, you will not be allowed to proceed to counseling.
