Become a Professional Counselor

Join us to
yourself and learn about others in a dynamic and supportive learning community. Through caring and empathy, you will learn about yourself, yourself-in-relationships, and others, especially those who are different from you.  

 In our community we value
as fundamental to being an ethical and competent counselor. Self-awareness means recognizing and strengthening your personal and professional abilities as well as overcoming your challenges as you strive to develop as a future counselor. 

Experiential Learning
is another core value in our programs. As a student, you will approach your professional journey in an active and engaged style – applying concepts to practice in every class! We hope to meet you soon!
