Welcome to Counseling Services


We seek to encourage our students to grow in every area of their lives—physically, emotionally, and spiritually—through a careful balance of support, encouragement, and challenge. Whether you come to us for a “tune-up” or a “make-over,” our counseling staff is equipped to respond to individual needs, regardless of your background. If we cannot serve your needs, we know how to connect you with those who can—confidentially.


We offer individual and group counseling, as well as pre-marital counseling. Our services are CONFIDENTIAL and provided at NO COST to full time Messiah students.

Hours: Monday thru Friday, 8am to 5pm.


Location: Next to Larsen Student Union (see map)
