Counseling Center

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.

The Counseling Center is here to support you in your transition, whether as a freshman or a returning student. Please reach out if we can assist you in any way.

This year, students seeking counseling services will be allowed a first appointment free of charge, after which there will be a one-time charge of $75 per semester for the continuation of counseling services. This is an access of service fee that will be billed directly to your student account confidentially.

Additionally, there will be a no-show fee of $20 for each appointment you do not cancel in advance that will also be billed directly your student account.
