The Counseling Center

The Counseling Center provides a safe, confidential, nonjudgmental setting where students can work through personal concerns, gain self-awareness, and develop strategies to achieve personal goals. The Counseling Center exists to assist students in maintaining their optimum level of health and wellness. Our counseling philosophy takes a holistic approach, focusing on the emotional, physical, academic, social and spiritual growth of each student. Counseling is available to all students free of charge. All files are confidential and not a part of a student’s educational record.

Online Assessments

The King’s College Counseling Center partners with Mental Health Screening to offer free and anonymous online screenings for depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, alcohol abuse, eating disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder. This tool takes only a few minutes to complete and can help you decide if you might benefit from meeting with one of our staff counselors or another mental health provider.
