M.A. Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program

Trinity’s Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program offers rigorous academic and professional training in counseling, combining theory, empirical research, and practical experience. The program deeply considers what it means to be human by emphasizing our embodied experiences, our relational needs, and our longing for healing and reconciliation. Grounded in a Christian perspective, we train counselors to consider all elements of their own humanity as they encounter both resilience and suffering in their clinical work. The program welcomes students of all faith traditions and emphasizes the formation of the whole person in the training of each student answering God’s call to bring healing and restoration.

The Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program is a part of the Counseling and Psychology Department. The Counselor Education faculty are responsible for the preparation of students in this program. Trinity is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

Dr. Kara Wolff believes good psychologists are genuinely curious about the world. “I hope that my students develop a life-long pursuit of satisfying that curious spirit. People are incredibly interesting, and there is so much more to know about why we do the things that we do.”
