Throughout time there have always been individuals who have counseled others. For our purposes, counseling refers to a profession whose primary purpose is to help individuals improve the overall quality of their lives, both intrapersonally as well as interpersonally.
That is, counselors and therapists are professionally trained to teach clients how to effectively manage difficult areas of their lives, which may include difficulties first encountered in childhood, adolescence, and/or adulthood. Our counseling program offers three post-graduate degrees. In addition to a master of arts degree (M.A.) in counseling, we offer two specialist in education (Ed.S.) degrees: school psychology and educational psychology.
