  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Adjustment issues
  • Alcohol/drugs
  • Conflict resolution
  • Anxiety
  • Grief and loss
  • Addictions
  • Homesickness
  • Divorce recovery

  • Premarital counseling
  • Roommate issues
  • Anger management
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Sexual abuse

Counseling Appointments

Clients meet one-on-one with a therapist weekly, usually in 50-minute sessions. The first few sessions consist of completing an extensive client history, reasons for coming to therapy, and a discussion of treatment goals. Therapy may last a few weeks or possibly months depending on the concerns involved.


Our standard office fee for our counseling services is very competitively priced. We will offer a sliding scale fee based on family income for those who are unable to afford our full fee. The fee for Hope International University students is $5.
