The Counseling Program faculty and students embrace professional identities as counselors. As such, we emphasize a focus on the promotion of mental health, wellness, and development to improve the human condition and affirm the unique identities of clients. We promote a heightened awareness of a multicultural and diverse world. We place high value on the therapeutic relationship and integration of clients' strengths and resources into the counseling process.
