Helping All Students

Counseling Services

Counseling Services is committed to supporting students in light of the transition with COVID-19. Whenever possible, students can meet with a therapist via a teletherapy model and/or will help students connect with a local therapist near them. Students, stay tuned to your email and Trinity’s social media for wellness webinars, tips to remain healthy and manage stress, and ways to connect with others on campus. If you have any questions or think therapy might be right for you, email and somebody will get back to you within 24 hours.

Welcome to Trinity Counseling Services!

At Trinity Christian College, we believe that genuine education involves the whole person. So, Trinity Counseling Services exists to promote emotional well-being, relational health, and spiritual vitality for all of our student body.

Our staff at Trinity Counseling Services is here to help you remove obstacles like stress, anxiety, depression, addictions, eating disorders, or broken relationships that might keep you from reaching your academic goals and flourishing during your years at Trinity.  Our staff is professionally trained and our services are completely confidential.
