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 here at Gordon College knows that now more than ever you are in need of support and assistance. In an effort to do everything we can to offer immediate relief in an ever-changing landscape, we are shifting our service model to provide Supportive Coaching online effective immediately, free of charge.

Due to the many logistics of licensing, HIPPA and FERPA compliance regulations, we will be unable to provide mental health assessments, diagnosis, or treatment recommendations regarding your ongoing care. However, a Supportive Coaching model allows us to offer 30-minute non-confidential sessions online immediately to assist with: 

  • Support in processing current stressors, adjustments, transitions, losses, grief and fears.
  • Support in creating daily structure and self-care within new "social distancing" restrictions and remote learning format. 
  • Assistance and support in identifying mental health resources and treatment in your area and online. 
  • Support in processing decision-making and problem-solving. 
  • Support and assistance in identifying resources for your academic, social, emotional, spiritual and physical needs.

To request online support, simply complete the online intake forms.


If you are in crisis and you are on-campus, please contact your Resident Director or Gordon Police at x3333. If you are off-campus and you are experiencing an emergency, please go directly to your nearest Emergency Room or call 911.
