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 will be open limited hours, for ten weeks of the summer, to provide short-term support, consultations and referral information for students who are living on campus this summer.
