The goal of the Counseling Center is to enhance the mission of Taylor University by supporting students' mental health as they navigate academic, personal, and spiritual growth.
The goal of each of our clinicians is to be culturally competent, trauma informed and spiritually sensitive as we engage with students. The Counseling Center provides three types of mental health services, intervention, prevention, and crisis intervention, in order to provide a variety of care for students.
The Counseling Center offers:
- Individual counseling via in-person or teletherapy (for depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, family problems, eating issues, spiritual concerns, conflict resolution, etc.)
- Couples counseling via in-person or teletherapy (dating, pre-engagement, pre-marital, marriage)
- Consultation (for students concerned about friends, family members, roommates, boyfriends, girlfriends, spouses, etc.)
- Group Counseling (different topics on an “as needed” or “as requested” basis)
- Daily walk-in hours (can be requested if a student is feeling unsafe and are given on a first-come, first-serve based on priority of need)
- De-stress weeks
- Mental health workshops (healthy relationships, boundaries, Enneagram, time management, signs and symptoms of depression, trauma, etc)
- Residence Life presentations
- Coordination and referral to on-campus and off-campus resources
Counseling Center services are available to anyone currently a student at Taylor University. These services are free of charge and are strictly confidential.
The Counseling Center is also available as a resource for Taylor University faculty and staff. This resource is limited to brief consultations or to answer questions should a faculty or staff member have concerns about a current Taylor University student.
