The Counseling and Education Center (CEC) provides affordable, professional counseling services to individuals and families in need, regardless of their income or insurance situation. Amid COVID-19, we have been offering therapy via telephone and video. Limited in-person counseling will be available in certain cases.
More than 39 years ago, Sister Faye Huelsmann (M.S., LPC) and Sister Pat Lewter (M.A., LPC) had the vision to provide affordable counseling services in Mesa County. In 1981, they founded the Center for Enriched Communications, empowering people of all ages and income levels to change their lives. In 1998, the Center merged with Individual and Family Counseling, another Mesa County nonprofit agency with similar goals. The merged agency became the Counseling and Education Center (CEC). The organization is non-sectarian and all individuals are welcome. We use Feedback Informed Treatment, an evidence-based approach that helps ensure rapport and alliance between clients and counselors.
