Our Philosophy: We believe in the redemptive power of the therapeutic process and the importance of providing a warm, safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment. Our hope is that each student will experience in counseling the freedom to reveal their authentic, unfiltered-selves as they share their unique story and work towards genuine healing and wholeness.
As Christians, vulnerability is not something that always comes naturally, especially in an environment of higher-education where almost every sphere of your lives as students is both evaluative and performance-based. As counselors we believe that this practice of vulnerability is vital in order to live lives that fully embody who God created each of us to be.
You are not alone.
WHY AM I SO STRESSED?!?
Click here to see a list of college-life stressors throughout the academic year. College students experience a tremendous number of transitions and stressors in all areas of their life at once! There's good reason if you are feeling exhausted, needing more time alone than usual (or feeling lonely), feeling overwhelmed by new routines, new relationship-building, and the academic and social demands of navigating life in college.
