Counseling Center

The Counseling Center enhances 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 care through intervention, prevention, and crisis intervention.

The Counseling Center offers:

  • Individual counseling via in-person or teletherapy (for depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, family problems, disordered eating, spiritual concerns, conflict resolution, etc.)
  • Couples counseling via in-person or teletherapy (dating, pre-engagement, pre-marital, and 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 by a student, Resident Life professional or faculty member if a student is feeling unsafe and are given on a first-come, first-serve based on priority of need)
  • De-stress week activities (healthy coping strategies are offered the week before exams)
  • Mental health workshops (transition and anxiety, mental wellness practices, stress and time management, healthy relationships and boundaries, and communication skills.)
  • Grounding Room (located in the Academic Enrichment Center in the Zondervan Library. This a quiet space to decompress; decrease stress, anxiety, and trauma triggers; and regulate thoughts and emotions. The grounding room can be utilized for telehealth appointments on or off campus.)
  • 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.
