A Christian College of the Liberal Arts & Sciences

A Message to Parents

My son graduated Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California and my daughter attended Taylor University in Upland, Indiana; 3000 miles away from my son and 500 miles away from my daughter.  While my wife and I did not hover over our children when they went away, we still wanted to know that help was available if needed.  You need to know that our staff of experienced counselors all have, or had, children in college and they understand the challenges facing today’s student. 

Our professionally trained staff, all committed Christian therapists, works from this sense of a deeper calling. If you notice your son or daughter struggling with college adjustment, or perhaps from a series of difficulties present even before coming to Houghton, do not hesitate to suggest a visit to our office.  If you have any questions browse through this website for more information about our services.  Or, you may wish to check out the Guide for Parents.

If you can not find the answer to the question you have, don’t hesitate to email me at Counseling Services.  Or if you believe you are dealing with an emergency situation and need assistance, contact me directly at 585-567-9622 or 585-808-5370.  In any event, know that we are here and that we want to help.
