Counseling Services Staff

Staff counselors are professionals with graduate degrees in counseling, psychology, or social work. Each staff person is committed to applying Christian principles as a foundation for their work with students. Counselors at the college recognize that there is no healing apart from the work of God. They understand their discipline and, at the same time, understand the work of grace in each person's life. The Center is also used for the training of graduate interns for the counseling profession. Graduate interns are closely supervised by a doctoral-level staff counselor who is responsible for the interns' work with students.
