Personal Counseling

Mission of Counseling Services: To provide confidential, professional counseling services in a Christian atmosphere to assist students dealing with emotional, psychological, social, and/or spiritual needs.

College students face many obstacles and difficulties. Sometimes these obstacles can become quite overwhelming. Talking with a counselor can help these struggles seem less stressful and can help resolve personal issues. The Office of Counseling Services provides confidential counseling in a caring atmosphere to assist students in dealing with their innermost needs. Sometimes a one-time consultation may be enough to get students started in a helpful direction. Sometimes more intense services are necessary. By providing assessments, individual counseling, group counseling, and referral services, students will have the opportunities to develop into more confident, mature individuals who can achieve academic and personal success.
