Become a Professional Counselor
Within our professional counseling program we strive to achieve the highest standards of excellence in providing psychologically and spiritually grounded training for counselors. We seek to create a community atmosphere within the program, a community bold with creative ideas and open with honesty, partnering in the inner work counselor training requires.
Adult community members are welcome to visit our “Expressives” room Mondays 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. The room, designed for expressive and creative work that facilitate self growth and self reflection, is equipped with paints, pastels, sand tray, etc.
The program is accredited in Community Mental Health Counseling* by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). For more information about the counseling profession, contact the American Counseling Association.
